With Oklahoma’s continued nosedive and Texas winning last night over Iowa State, it’s looking more and more as though the Sooners might be the only Big 12 outfit joining the Cyclones in the “didn’t make it” column come Sunday. More importantly, The dirt burglars’ loss to Oklahoma State last night makes it even more certain that the good guys from Bramlage are safely in the field.

Now, of course, comes the opportunity to play for seed. In the last week, a bunch of teams hovering in the 7-10 seed line projections have suffered losses they could ill afford. That’s good news for K-State if they can make a Big 12 Tournament run, and that quest starts this morning.

The game

Kansas State (21-10, 10-8 Big 12), the fourth seed, faces the fifth-seeded TCU Horned Frogs (21-10, 9-9 Big 12). K-State now leads the all-time series 12-6 after the teams split the season series, each winning at home. They’ve met once before in Kansas City, a two-point TCU win three years ago in the 8-9 game. Bruce Weber is 9-4 against the Frogs, a slightly better record than the program has posted overall. Weber is 2-3 against Jamie Dixon, a record which includes splits with TCU the past two seasons and a humiliating loss to Pitt back in 2015 in the third-place game of the Maui Invitational.


TCU is a 3½-point favorite, which is bad. The over is 144, suggesting a 74-70 Frog victory. OddsShark is back in our pocket today, projecting a 74-73 Wildcat win.

K-State Sports Network, with Wyatt Thompson and Stan Weber. The satellite feed is on Sirius 145/XM 199; we’re not sure whether this will be WyattVision or whether they’ll be carrying a network radio crew. K-State’s information suggests the former.
