Kansas State Wildcats
The Wildcats enter tonight’s matchup sporting a 22-7 record on the season. In addition, the program has posted a 12-4 record in Big 12 play this season. This currently ties them alongside Texas Tech for the lead in the conference. All things considered, Kansas State should be able to take the lead in the conference tonight with a win over the struggling Horned Frogs. Furthermore, Kansas State is 6-4 in their last 10 versus TCU, so there’s plenty of reason to believe they’ll get the job done tonight.
Players to Watch: Barry Brown Jr. (15.1 ppg, 7.2 rpg, 2.7 apg), Dean Wade (13.2 ppg, 6.2 rpg, 2.7 apg), and Xavier Sneed (10.4 ppg, 5.4 rpg, 1.9 apg).
TCU Horned Frogs
The Horned Frogs leap into tonight’s Big 12 matchup with an 18-11 record on the season. At the present time TCU has posted a 6-10 record in conference play, which ranks them 7th overall in the Big 12. All in all, TCU is in a pretty big slump at the moment and probably won’t be able to compete with No. 16 Kansas State tonight. Looking over the numbers, it’s clear that the Wildcats will have to turn to their defense tonight. This is because the Horned Frogs are scoring 75.5 per matchup while Kansas State is averaging 65.9. However, Kansas State does have a much better defense as they’re giving up about 60 per game while TCU is allotting 70.9.
Players to Watch: Koaut Noi (15.1 ppg, 5.1 rpg, 1.1 apg), Desmond Bane (14.9 ppg, 5.6 rpg, 2.5 apg), and Alex Robinson (13.2 ppg, 3.6 rpg, 7.0 apg).
