Kansas State Vs. Missouri: Where The Wildcats Stand

The Kansas State Wildcats will travel to Columbia, Mo. to take on the Missouri Tigers at Mizzou Arena. The game is part of ESPN's Big Monday schedule and will tip-off at 4:30 p.m. (CT). The Wildcats are 13-5 entering the game and they're still trying to figure out who they are. 

SB Nation's Big 12 Hoops blog gives us a run down of where the Wildcats stand entering this game. 

The Wildcats enter in coming off possibly their best game of the season as they beat down Texas Tech by 34 points. KSU welcomed back Curtis Kelly in the game against the Red Raiders after he served his six game suspension for illegal benefits. In the game Frank Martin changed up his lineup and rotation greatly as he inserted true freshman Shane Southwell into the starting lineup and he did not play former starters Wally Judgeand Nick Russell one single minute.    

The Wildcats are at a point where they can go up or down (obvious statement of the year). Another loss and they'll be 13-6 and losers of three of their last four games. A win and they may be back to the pace everyone thought they'd be at by this time of the year. 

Kansas State is the underdog entering the game. Getting Jacob Pullen and Curtis Kelly involved early will obviously be important as they try to stop Marcus Denmon and Ricardo Ratliffe.
