The Purple Pride gears up for Texas A&M with a game they should win... as long as they're not looking ahead.

Remember that time Coppin State beat South Carolina in the NCAA Tournament?

Bramlage Coliseum (12,528)
Manhattan KS
7:00 PM CT
Coppin State
(2-6, 0-2 MEAC)
at (rv) Kansas State
(6-1, 0-0 Big 12)

It's been a pretty good week in Manhattan, and tonight's probably not going to change that. The Wildcats have one more tuneup before Saturday's big non-conference clash in College Station, and it shouldn't be too much of a challenge.

The game: Kansas State hosts the Coppin State Eagles. This will be the seventh meeting between the two schools, all in Manhattan, and Coppin is looking for their first victory against the Wildcats. Bruce Weber has met the Eagles twice, both times prior to coming to the Flint Hills; he won both of those meetings as well. It's Michael Grant's first meeting with K-State in a 17-year career which has seen him coach at four different HBCU programs, including a three-year stint at Southern University, where he took over for a true titan of HBCU basketball, Ben Jobe.

Odds: At this writing, there is no actual Vegas line. OddsShark's score prediction, however, is 78-59 in favor of the good guys.

Tickets: Tickets are available at the ticket office for $10 or $20 for chairbacks.

Television: FOX Sports Kansas City 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 93/XM 200.

Online: Video streaming via WatchESPN. Audio streaming and live stats at Gamecenter.
