Hey, we know you’re all pumped about last night’s thrilling defeat of that horrible set of blue-clad impostor Wildcats, and excited about tomorrow’s tilt with the lovable Ramblers of Loyola and Sister Jean, but we have something else to interest you.
It’s the Round of 16 in the 2018 WNIT and, for those who haven’t been paying attention, your Wildcats are still alive. After a rough regular season, the Cats have turned on the burners, dispatching Saint Louis and Utah at Bramlage last week. Tonight, K-State faces another test.
The Game: Kansas State Wildcats (18-15, 7-11 Big 12) hosts the Cal-Davis Aggies (27-6, 14-2 Big West). The Aggies were the Big West regular season champions, but were upset 63-55 in the conference tournament final by Cal State-Northridge. K-State has played Cal-Davis twice, winning both contests; the most recent was a 61-41 win in 2010.
As a reminder, K-State is attempting to win their second WNIT title, having claimed the crown in 2006.
Tipoff: Friday, March 23, 7:00pm at Bramlage Coliseum (12,528) in Manhattan, Kansas.
Tickets: $5/10. Plenty of seats available, and since this could potentially be it for the Cats in 2018 even if they win, please try and go see them if you’re able. Why? K-State will play Indiana if they win, and Indiana drew 5500 fans for their Round of 16 meeting with Purdue. Soundly beating that would probably get another home game. Capisce?
Streaming: KStateHD.tv, both audio and video, with Brian Smoller and Kristin Waller.
