Tonight, there's one final test to close out 2015 and prepare for Big 12 play for the Wildcats, as they try to pick up a very important tenth win on the season.
The game: Kansas State hosts the Saint Louis Billikens for Junior Wildcat Club Night. K-State will be aiming to tie the all-time series with Saint Louis, which leads 9-8 after a 65-64 win in the STL back in 2004. The Wildcats are 4-3 against the Billikens in Manhattan. Bruce Weber coached against Saint Louis five times when he was running teams in Illinois; he's 3-2 in those games. Jim Crews, who's suffering through a dismal and mediocre campaign after going 66-35 in his first three season as Billiken head coach, has never coached against the Wildcats. Against Weber, Crews has lost seven of nine meetings going back to his days at Evansville.
Odds: K-State is a 12.5-point favorite, with the total set at 126.5. That's a Vegas prediction in the neighborhood of 69-57.
Tickets: Tickets are available for $10, $20 for chairbacks.
Television: FOX Sports Midwest at 7pm CT with Ben Boyle and Stan Weber.
Radio: K-State Sports Network, with Wyatt Thompson and Matt Walters. Also available on satellite on Sirius 108 (no XM). Note that since this game is on FOX Midwest, your chances of having to go find it somewhere else on the dial are reduced; the game will air in the entire Midwest footprint except for Nebraska.
