The comeback starts now, or something like that.

The agony of Red Raider basketball, writ large.

Nothing is a certainty in this world, especially a Big 12 basketball game. But the Wildcats have -- quite literally -- their best opportunity all year to win a road game when they take on the struggling Raiders of a reddish hue tonight. It's a necessary win, too; a loss would all but doom any chance of making the NCAA tournament, barring a Big 12 tournament championship. The Cats can't overlook this one; after all, the Red Raiders did knock off Iowa State last month. But as long as they play a solid game, this shouldn't pose any great challenge.

Of course, they'll have to do it without Marcus Foster and Malek Harris, who literally 20 minutes ago got suspended for violation of team rules. AWESOME.

So sit back, relax, bask in the glow of a wonderful National Signing Day, and enjoy tonight's game.

Go Cats!
