Take your #UnholyAlliance and shove it, Tigers. You're our enemies, and you always have been since at least around 11pm Friday night and you always will be until at least around 9pm tonight. Eternal enmity, and don't you forget it.
The game: Kansas State takes on the Missouri Tigers in the semifinals of the CBE Hall of Fame Classic in Kansas City. This renews a dormant rivalry which has seen the teams meet 235 times with K-State winning 119 to Mizzou's 116 -- and K-State's won the last three meetings, so the series was tied just four short years ago. K-State has a big edge in Kansas City, having beaten the Tigers 15 times in 22 tries, but they haven't clashed on that turf since 1999.
Odds: K-State is favored by 5.5, with the total at 140. So Vegas expects 73-67 Wildcat victory.
Tickets: Tickets are available at the Sprint Center. $10-15 for upper level seats, $30-65 lower level.
Television: ESPNU at 6:00 CT with Bob Wischusen and Dan Dakich.
Radio: K-State Sports Network, with Wyatt Thompson and Stan Weber. Also available on satellite on Sirius 132 (no XM, it appears).
Following the game, if you're not in attendance, flip to ESPN2 where coverage will continue as Northwestern takes on North Carolina. The winners of tonight's games will meet tomorrow at 9pm, while the losers will face off at 6:30pm.
