After opening the season with three games against low-major opponents, Kansas State's men's basketball team has their first real challenge of non-conference play Thursday night against the Atlantic 10's George Washington.
The Wildcats are -11 point favorites in a 7:00 PM game against the Colonials at Bramlage Stadium.
George Washington, at 4-1, was blown out by No. 23 California but has otherwise played well for new head coach Mike Lonergan, whom they hired from Vermont. They retained the majority of a team that finished 17-14 last season, including leading scorer Tony Taylor, a 6'1 senior guard averaging 15.8 points a game.
Thursday's game will be televised regionally on Fox Sports Kansas City and will be carried throughout the state on the K-State Sports Radio Network.
