Kansas State vs Texas Tech: Open Game Thread

The Red Raiders are in Manhattan to face a struggling Wildcats squad.

NCAA Basketball: Kansas State at Texas
Scott Wachter-USA TODAY Sports

There’s not much to say about this season so far that hasn’t already been said.

Things are not great in Wildcatland right now, at least as it relates to the win/loss sheet for K-State men’s basketball. And it’s likely to get worse before it gets better, with three Top 25 ranked teams in the next three games awaiting the Wildcats. So, be prepared — it could get ugly.

But they still just play one game at a time, and games aren’t won on paper. The Wildcats still have a slim chance tonight against the Red Raiders. ...No, don’t laugh, it’s true. These Wildcats are still capable of winning games in Big 12 play, and even beating ranked teams. It’s going to take all the right parts of this team being on at the same time, but it’s possible.

Don’t expect any miracles tonight, but also don’t be surprised if it happens.

We’re back to a normal tip-off tonight from Bramlage, with the start time set for 7:02pm CST. Tonight’s game can be see on Big 12 Now on ESPN+ with Mark Neely (play-by-play) and Lance Blanks (analyst) on the call.

If you haven’t signed up for ESPN+ yet (and you can do so right here), you can listen to Wyatt Thompson (play-by-play) and Stan Weber (analyst) call the game on much of the K-State Sports Radio Network,on satellite on XM 386, and also available online via the TuneIn App and at
