Last time these two teams met, K-State got spanked and Kamau Stokes got hurt. Tonight, a different outcome would go a long way toward moving K-State toward the lock column.
Kansas State (17-7, 6-5 Big 12) hosts the seventh-ranked (and Big 12-leading!) Texas Tech Red Raiders (20-4, 8-3 Big 12). K-State leads the all-time series 23-14, and holds a whopping 15-2 edge in Manhattan. Bruce Weber has never lost to Tech at home.
Texas Tech is favored by 1½, with the over at 135½, suggesting a 69-67 win for the Red Raiders. OddsShark gives Tech a hair more credit, projecting a final score of 71-66.
