With both the men and women beating OU, you have to wonder. Will the OU win propel both teams to the Big Dance?

Bye, Bye weekend hangover. Hello, content! First up, Luke and I sat down with mattisbear from Our Daily Bear to talk tonight's basketball game with Baylor.

Luke then examined what Kansas State needs to do in order to get into the Big Dance.

Kansas State's victory over OU helped raise their NCAA tournament profile immensely. So much so, that SBNation's own Chris Dobbertean's latest bracket specifically mentions to be on the look out for Kansas State.

While the OU victory was a great win for the Wildcats, the win alone will not be enough to make the tournament. More statements will be necessary and tonight the Wildcat have a chance to make another statement by beating the 21st ranked Baylor Bears. (Joel Jellison, Manhattan Mercury)

Tonight's game features two teams trending in opposite directions. Kansas State comes in off it's biggest win of the season, while Baylor has faltered in their last two games losing to both Texas, and West Virginia. Kansas State needs to play with the same level of intensity they showed during the OU game if they hope to extend Baylor's losing streak. (Alan Ferguson, Fox Sports)

First the men, then the women. The Kansas State Women's basketball team took down the 21st ranked OU women's team 87-71 last night. Kindred Wesemann was the long range assassin, scorching OU with 6-8 shooting from three and going 8-10 from the free throw line to finish with 26 points.
