The Kansas State Wildcats draw Southern Miss in the second round of the NCAA Tournament to be played on Thursday, March 15. The game will be televised on truTV with a 12:40 p.m. ET tip off.

Kansas State earned a No. 8 seed after finishing 21-10 on the season. The Wildcats don't figure to be an easy out in the tournament after they earned victories over Missouri twice and Baylor. Consistency was the issue for the Wildcats as they also suffered losses to Oklahoma and Iowa State during the conference season.

Southern Miss finished second in Conference USA during the regular season but fell to Marshall in the semifinals of the conference tournament.

Game date/time: Thursday, March 15, 12:40 p.m. ET

TV: truTV
