A few weeks ago then-No. 4 Kansas State Wildcats played the No. 1 Duke Blue Devils in the CBE Classic at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Mo. The crowd at that game was far and away pro-purple sporting lots of K-State gear. I was impressed with the showing by those Wildcat fans.
Mizzou fans are showing basketball in this area is indeed important -- especially if you're in the top 10. Mizzou, ranked No. 9 in the AP poll, brought along a nice chunk of fans to the Sprint Center for this game.
Here are a couple of photos of the Sprint Center crowd:
