The Longhorns head to Bramlage with a three-game losing streak. Will the Wildcats make it four? ...No, no, they probably wont.

NCAA Basketball: Kansas State at Kansas
I’M MAKING HISTORY—ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?
Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

Last time out was almost a shocker. For the first time in 2021, the Wildcats looked like they belonged on the same court as their opponent. Sure, it ended in yet another double-digit loss, but K-State was competitive throughout and threatened more than once to pull within a couple possessions even late into the game.

Of course, a loss is still a loss, and this historically bad season continues to trudge along. Tonight we will see the Longhorns in Manhattan, and even though they are in the midst of their own three-game losing streak, are in a much better position than the Wildcats. Texas will be in position tonight to help K-State break a record almost old enough to drink, as a Texas win will give this Wildcats squad the most consecutive losses in Bramlage at six-straight, breaking the five-game mark set from January to February 2000. That was Tom Asbury’s last season.

So while Texas is still hurting, and may be ripe for an upset if the Wildcats can play wil the same fire they showed against Texas Tech, expect the Longhorns to help K-State make yet another mark in the wrong part of the record book.

Today’s game from Bramlage Coliseum tips at 7:01pm CT and can be seen on Big 12 Now on ESPN+ with Ted Emrich (play-by-play) and Lance Blanks (analyst) on the call.

If you haven’t subscribed to ESPN+ (and you can do so right here) or just don’t want to, 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 384.
