One thing we can almost guarantee: we won't enjoy this game as much as we enjoyed watching Oklahoma's last game, which may very well have been the greatest regular season college basketball game ever played (our feelings about their opponent notwithstanding and, in these terms, wholly irrelevant).
That is, unless the Wildcats pull off an audacious upset.
The game: Kansas State visits the Oklahoma Sooners. Oklahoma leads the series 105-97, largely due to a dominating 60-27 record in Norman. Bruce Weber is 5-1 against the Sooners and 6-1 against Lon Kruger; Kruger is 5-6 against K-State.
Odds: Oklahoma is a 12.5 point favorite. With a total of 141, Vegas is expecting 77-65 or so.
Tickets: Sorry, Oklahomans. It's sold out. The secondary market does have seats available, ranging from $12-99 and averaging about $30. Virtually everything below the average is in the upper tier, obviously.
Television: ESPN News at 3:30 CT with Mark Neely and Jerod Ward.
Radio: K-State Sports Network, with Wyatt Thompson and Stan Weber. Also available on satellite on Sirius 136/XM 199.
