The Kansas State Wildcats have lost two in a row. In my world, three losses qualifies for a losing streak so that's what the Wildcats are trying to avoid on Saturday when they host the Texas Tech Red Raiders at Bramlage Coliseum.
Kansas State is in a bit of disarray right now. They've love four of their last seven and two in a row to start Big 12 Conference play. The senior leaders, like Jacob Pullen, aren't acting like senior leaders instead declaring they won't be playing in the NIT if that's where K-State ends up. Their head coach, Frank Martin, was right from the start when he cautioned folks on crowning K-State.
Curtis Kelly will be returning from suspension so there's some hope Kansas State gets back to doing whatever they were doing before. We know they have the talent and we know they can win some big time games but it's a matter of going out and showing it.
There's no reason Kansas State shouldn't be winning this game. They're favored by double digits and they need it much more than Texas Tech.
Some have said what Kansas State is feeling right now is as bad as it'll get. A loss to Texas Tech today would test that theory.
The two teams will meet at Bramlage Coliseum at 12:30 p.m.
