Your Kansas State Wildcats have headed south for the winter...or at least a few days out of November. They are in the U.S. Virgin Islands for their early-season tournament this year, participating in the Paradise Jam.
We won’t go into much detail here, as you can check out our own Luke Sobba’s full Paradise Jam preview for that.
But tonight’s game should be an easy victory for the Wildcats over the Eastern Kentucky Colonels in the final game of the opening round of the 2018 Paradise Jam.
Tonight’s game tips off at 6:30pm CST, but unless you want to spend $30 on a month subscription to FloHoops, you’re out of luck to watch the game. If you’ve got money to burn, you can stream the game at FloHoops.com or on Apple TV 4 or Roku [FloSports App] with Trevor Williams (play-by-play) and Kevin Lehman (analyst) on the call.
For the rest of us, you will be able to listen to live audio across much of the K-State Sports Network with with Brian Smoller (play-by-play) and Ben Boyle (analyst) calling the action (no Wyatt, since he needs to be in Manhattan for the football game tomorrow). The game will also be available streaming for free online via the TuneIn app/TuneIn.com and at www.kstatesports.com/watch. Satellite coverage is also available at Sirius 135 / XM 199 / Internet 953. Live stats are available at www.paradisejam.com/stats, and Twitter updates (@KStateMBB) will also be a part of the coverage from K-State Athletics.
