Quotable
“I anticipated a hard-fought game,” said head coach Bruce Weber. “They've had a lot of close games outside of the Kansas game where they kicked their butt. Baylor came down to the last couple of plays, Iowa State came down to the last couple of plays, against Oklahoma Carroll's shot bounces off the rim, Texas Tech went to overtime. Travis (Ford), with losing a couple of players, one for the whole year and one for a while now, has done a good job of keeping them together and making them compete and play hard.”

Up Next
K-State continues its road swing on Tuesday, as the Wildcats travel to Fort Worth, Texas to face TCU (11-14, 2-10 Big 12) for the first time at the renovated Schollmaier Arena at 7 p.m. CT on ESPNews. It will be the first meeting between the schools this season after the Horned Frogs won 2 of 3 meetings in 2014-15.
