Finally, it’s about showtime. Only a few more hours of tired Marcus Foster vs Bruce Weber stories. Maybe only a few more hours before K-State finally gets past Friday in the NCAA Tournament. Let’s hope.

The game

Kansas State (22-11, 10-8 Big 12), the ninth seed, faces the eighth-seeded Creighton Bluejays (21-11, 10-8 Big East) in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. This series may end up dead even after tonight, as Creighton has won eight of fifteen meetings between the two schools. The Bluejays have never won in Manhattan, while going 7-2 against the Cats in Omaha; they’ve also played one previous neutral site game, with Creighton winning. This is the first meeting between the squads in the NCAA Tournament, however.

For his part, Bruce Weber is 5-7 against the Jays, 0-2 on a neutral court; Greg McDermott’s record against the Cats is abysmal, though, having gone 1-7 in four years at Iowa State.


Creighton is a 1-point favorite, with an over of 143. Can’t get much cleaner math than that; it means Vegas is expecting Creighton to win 72-71. OddsShark expects more points but the same result, projecting a 75-74 Bluejay win.


Friday, March 16 at 5:50pm CT, Spectrum Center (19,077) in Charlotte, North Carolina.




TNT with Jim Nantz, Bill Raftery, Grant Hill, and Tracy Wolfson.


Two options: K-State Sports Network, with Wyatt Thompson and Stan Weber, or Westwood One with Kevin Kugler and Eric Montross. The latter team will be carried on the satellite feed (Sirius 137/XM 201).


Video streaming via March Madness Live (also available as a mobile app), Hulu, CBS All Access (subject to regional availability), and Fubo. K-State claims audio streaming of the Wyattvision broadcast is available via, but there’s no link for that broadcast at present. The NCAA is another horrible entity using StatBroadcast, so you’ll have to get live stats from a regular website like ESPN.
