Doubleheader: Kansas State vs Abilene Christian/Columbia - game time, tv, radio, streaming, and open thread

Two games, one arena. K-State's men and women team up for a night of hoops.

They're better at hoops than football, that's for sure.

Doubleheader night at the Octagon as four unbeaten teams will become two. Both games are televised, assuming you have the proper cable or satellite package; otherwise, both are streamed so you can settle in and enjoy five hours of K-State actually winning.

Women

The game: Kansas State hosts the Abilene Christian Wildcats. The two teams have met once before, just last year when K-State won 68-53. The Cats are coming off a 75-67 season-opening win at Tulsa on Friday; the other Wildcats ripped Wayland Baptist of the NAIA 96-71 in Abilene on Saturday. Abilene Christian was 17-12 last year, 9-9 in the Southland. They are in the third year of their transition from Division II and are still ineligible for the NCAA tournament. (We would say their transition back to Division I, but the women's basketball program didn't exist when ACU was a Division I school previously.)

Odds: Nobody bets on women's basketball unless UConn is involved, right?

Tickets: Tickets (to both games) are available from the ticket office for $10, $20 for chairbacks.

Television: FOX College Sports Atlantic at 5:30 CT with Brian Smoller and Kristin Waller. That's 608-1 on DirecTV, 451 on Dish, 272 on Cox, and 372 on Time Warner.

Radio: K-State Sports Network, with Matt Walters all by his lonesome. There is no satellite broadcast.

Online: Video streaming, audio streaming and live stats via KStateHD.TV and Gamecenter.

Men

The game: Kansas State hosts the Columbia Lions in the second game of the CBE Hall of Fame Classic. The Wildcats are 2-0 all-time against schools from the Ivy League, but this is the first time K-State has ever met That Other School From Manhattan and the first game against an Ivy since 1975; both prior meetings were in the NCAA tournament, with a 1952 win over Yale in Kansas City and a 1975 win over Penn in their own backyard at the venerable Palestra. The Lions defeated Division III Kean on Friday, 107-62.

Odds: K-State is a four-point favorite, with the total at 130. That adds up to 67-63 Wildcats, although OddsShark's computer model curiously projects the actual score at 68-62 Columbia.

Tickets: see above.

Television: FS Kansas City at 8:00 CT with Ben Boyle and Stan Weber.

Radio: K-State Sports Network, with Wyatt Thompson pushing Matt Walters over one chair. Satellite broadcast on Sirius/XM 81. We know we have some New Yorkers in the readership; if you can't internet, you appear to be out of luck as it seems WKCR -- Columbia's campus station -- doesn't carry Columbia games anymore, and Columbia's game notes indicate audio is only available on the internet. As broadcast information can be vague, however, you New Yorkers can try to tune in to 89.9 to check for yourself if necessary.

Online: Video streaming via ESPN3. Free audio streaming is also available via (KStateHD.tv. Live stats via (Gamecenter.
