Luke Thompson and Eric Rubottom sat down (or maybe they stood, it’s a podcast so who knows) with Chris Dobbertean, SBNations’s own bracketologist to talk Kansas State basketball and the upcoming NCAA Tournament.

Early this morning Jon Morse gave us all the info we need about today’s Big 12 tournament game against TCU.


With tipoff only 2.5 hours away, here’s some reading to help you pass the time. (Since we all know you aren’t working or anything).

Xavier Sneed has done a little bit of everything this season. He’s scored well, rebounded well, and passed well. He just hasn’t combined everything together for an extended period of time. He hopes that changes heading into the Big 12 Tournament. (Ryan Black, Manhattan Mercury)

A healthy Kamau Stokes could prove key to K-State’s postseason play. Prior to his injury coaches could count on Stokes to be a steady distributor and scorer. Since his injury he has struggled to regain his early season form, but he hopes the extra practice times during post season play will help him get back to playing at a high level. (Kellis Robinett, Wichita Eagle)

Barry Brown struggled mightily in the last Battle of the Purple down in Texas, and he hopes to redeem himself in today’s game. (Mack McClure, Manhattan Mercury)

Time for a little K-State hoops history. Mike Evans was a phenomenal guard for Kansas State who played for the ‘Cats from ‘74 to ‘78 and the Mercury is running a two part feature on his time with the Wildcats during Big 12 play. Part one came out today, look for part two on Sunday. (Mack McClure, Manhattan Mercury)


A little recruiting news as well for you today. 2019 OL Jonny Bottorff visited the Wildcats over the weekend. He said he enjoyed visiting with Coach Dickey, and the aggressive style of blocking the Wildcats employ. He’s also on the radar of schools like: Iowa, Iowa State, and Southern Illinois. (Allen Trieu,
