How will K-State respond after one of the most humiliating defeats in program history? Tonight may be the ultimate check on the Cats’ tournament hopes. But Austin has not been nearly as hostile an environment as some other Big 12 locales, which is a cause for optimism.
Kansas State (16-7, 5-5 Big 12) visits the Texas Longhorns (15-8, 5-5 Big 12). K-State leads the all-time series 19-15; Texas has the edge in Austin at 9-7. Bruce Weber is 6-5 against the Horns, 2-2 in Austin. In the two seasons Since Shaka Smart took over, the teams have split their games.
Texas is favored by 5, with the over at a modest 134, leaving us with a Vegas projection of 72-67 Horns. OddsShark has done another heel turn, projecting a 73-61 Texas win.
