Kansas State vs Texas: Open Game Thread

The Wildcats are back in Manhattan, desperately hoping to end their losing streak, but the Longhorns won’t go down easy.

NCAA Basketball: Kansas State at Texas Tech
LOUD NOISES

We won’t make this a long write-up today. There’s very little to say that hasn’t already been said about this K-State basketball team and season.

Bad basketball, historic losing, and now more roster troubles. Like we said earlier this week, it’s all bad fro Bruce Weber and his crew right now. And there doesn’t seem to be any light at the end of this tunnel right now.

But as always, as Wildcat fans hope springs eternal. This is college basketball after all, and anything can happen. It’s entirely possible for the Wildcats to beat the Longhorns today. But it’s just as likely for the Cats to perform very similar to the game in Austin, with a long scoring drought that creates a hole too big to dig out of.

So, I guess, we’ll see.

We’ve got the early afternoon game today, with an 1:06pm CST tip that can be seen on CBS with Andrew Catalon (play-by-play) and Steve Lappas (analyst) on the call. You might be able to stream the game via CBS Sports App if the game isn’t blocked in your area.

If you don’t get CBS, or can’t access the stream, 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, and also available online via the TuneIn App and at K-StateSports.com, and satellite radio on XM 381.
