Kansas State Home Double-Header: Open Game Thread

The men face OU and the women take on Texas Tech today in Bramlage

NCAA Basketball: Kansas State at Colorado State Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

We’ve got a Kansas State Wildcat double-header in Bramlage Coliseum today, so we will have a game thread that, barring something crazy in the men’s game, will cover both games.

At 2:00pm CST, the men face the struggling Oklahoma Sooners, who are in the midst of a five-game losing streak. OU will be without senior guard, and leading scorer, Jordan Woodard for the fourth-straight game, and the Sooners have struggled even more without him. The Sooners have also dropped both of their true road games this year, earlier this season at Wisconsin, and last Tuesday at TCU 60-57.

The Wildcats are looking to rebound from just their second loss of the season, as No. 3/2 Kansas held off a late K-State rally with a runner at the buzzer, 90-88, to end a 7-game winning streak. Despite the loss, the 12-2 start ties the 2012-13 squad for the best start under head coach Bruce Weber. Despite the loss the Wildcats saw several positives as it was the closest match-up with the Jayhawks at Allen Fieldhouse since the last win for the Wildcats in 2006, and the Cats scored the second-most points (88) in the building in the series and the most since a 91-72 victory in Feb. 7, 1962. Sophomore forward Dean Wade also continued his strong play in league games and is currently the Big 12’s leading scorer (19.0 ppg.) in league games. Wade once again led the Wildcats with a career-tying 20 points at Kansas, and all five starters registered double figures for the fourth time under Weber, including the second time this season.

The game will be broadcast on ESPNNews, with Mitch Holthus (play-by-play) and Bryndon Manzer (analyst) on the call, and streaming may be available to you (depending on your location and provider/package) at WatchESPN.com. Audio, as always, is available on the K-State Sports Network (Sirius 93/XM 199) and streaming online at K-StateSports.com.

In the night cap, the #25/RV K-State women begin a two-game home stand as the Wildcats host Texas Tech at 7:00pm. The Wildcat women will also be looking to bounce back from a tough, disappointing road loss, as the Cats fell to OU in overtime last Wednesday night 85-80. It was the first time in the Jeff Mittie era that K-State scored 80 or more points in a game and lost, and also wasted a career effort from Karyla Middlebrook who led all scorers with 27 points in the contest.

The series with Tech favors the Wildcats, as leads the overal series 17-13 and head coach Jeff Mittie is 7-4 against Texas Tech. K-State has also won four of the last five in the series.

The game will be broadcast on ESPN3, produced by the K-State Sports Network, with Brian Smoller (play-by-play) and Missy Heidrick (analyst) on the call. Audio will be available on select parts of the K-State Sports Radio network and streaming online at K-StateSports.com.
