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:
- Your own intrepid servant, J.T. VanGilder
- Kendall Kaut at Our Daily Bears
- Kellis Robinett at the Star
- Ken Corbitt at the Capital-Journal

- The Capital-Journal’s Kevin Haskin thinks the Cats are in

- 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

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.
