So, uh, yeah. That happened, and the Cats are probably headed to the NCAA Tournament. Quick bullets, and we’re just linking author names here for sanity’s sake:

Recap list

Bubble Talk

  • Joe Lunardi has 11-seeds K-State and Syracuse meeting in Dayton
  • SB Nation’s Chris Dobbertean has K-State in, just ahead of the Orange
  • The Capital-Journal’s Kevin Haskin thinks the Cats are in
  • Yahoo’s Henry Bushnell isn’t completely sure
  • Jerry Palm at CBS already had K-State as the last team in; he says they’re secure now
  • Shelby Mast at USA Today has K-State facing Providence in Dayton
  • Michael Beller at Sports Illustrated has the Cats in the last four
  • Lastly, ESPN’s Eamonn Brennan stops short of calling K-State a lock, but thinks they’ve probably gotten the job done.

And two final bits of hoops news: Sam Mellinger talks about Bruce Weber, and John Lowe at our sister site Smoking Musket already has a West Virginia/K-State preview up.

As for today’s activity, the Cats take on West Virginia at 8pm, while two other sports have double-headers: tennis takes on Nebraska-Omaha at 10am before starting Big 12 play against Texas Tech at 3pm, and baseball will play a pair against Cal-Riverside, first game at 1pm.
