Kansas State at TCU: Open Game Thread

Time to tangle with our purpley friends in Fort Worth

NCAA Basketball: Kansas State at Oklahoma Mark D. Smith-USA TODAY Sports

Well here we are. Just two games left in the regular season for the Kansas State Wildcats. And we are in the same position as last year, wondering if we can get enough wins to somehow sneak into the NCAA Tournament field.

This is sub-optimal.

I wont harangue you with stats of either team, or any sort of narrative tonight. Our own Greg Woods did a far better job of that than I could put in here.

The Cats have looked leaderless and lost the last two games. Bruce Weber appears to be a lame duck coach, regardless of the athletic director situation, unless he can figure out how to will this team to three or four straight wins and a trip to the second day of NCAA Tournament play. Though all history would indicate that is highly unlikely.

So sit back, try to enjoy, and hopefully the young men on the court for the Cats avail themselves better than the did last Saturday. It couldn’t get worse than that, right?

Tonight’s game is slated for an 8:05pm CT tip and will be broadcast on ESPNU with Dave Armstrong (play-by-play) and Tim Welsh (analyst) on the call. 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 108/XM 384 (TCU Broadcast)) and streaming online at K-StateSports.com.
