2018 Schedule
15-5, 2nd in Big 12

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Kansas State gave itself an uphill climb with a non-conference SOS somewhere in the 330s and zero top-100 non-conference wins — yet the Wildcats are building an at-large resume anyway. Now 5-3 in the league with wins over Oklahoma, TCU and at Baylor.

Joe Lunardi Senior Writer, ESPN.com 

Baylor is in a similar must-win situation hosting Kansas State. The Bears, like TCU, risk falling to 2-6 in the Big 12 with a loss tonight. Teams do recover from that kind of conference deficit, but not very often. K-State, meanwhile, has won three of four and sits just two spots out of the latest NCAA projection.

Trae Young has eight points (on 3-of-10 shooting) to go along with four assists and eight turnovers, as Oklahoma trails Kansas State 38-33 at the half in Manhattan. The freshman has turned in some big second halves, and the Sooners could use one of those.

It is my partner's first trip to Allen Fieldhouse so I thought I would take Rich Hollenberg on a mini-tour of this historic basketball shrine. Kansas entertains Kansas State Saturday at Noon Eastern on ESPN.
