We've got another big day of college basketball in the Kansas City area. There are three games we're focusing on today: Oklahoma Sooners vs. Missouri Tigers, Iowa State Cyclones vs. Kansas Jayhawks and Kansas State Wildcats vs. Colorado Buffaloes. If the college basketball odds mean anything, only one of those games will be close. Here's the TV schedule for Saturday:
Oklahoma Sooners vs. Missouri Tigers: This game will start at 12:30 p.m. (CT) and will be on the Big 12 Network (channel 218, Kansas City Time Warner folks). Missouri is a 15-point favorite so they're expected to cruise rather handily in this game.
Iowa State Cyclones vs. Kansas Jayhawks: This game tips off at 3:00 p.m. (CT) on the Jayhawks basketball network (channel 8, Kansas City Time Warner folks). Kansas is a whopping 20-point favorite over Iowa State and they'll be working without freshman Josh Selby and sophomore Thomas Robinson, who are both out with injury (Selby is actually considered doubtful so there's a chance he plays). Kansas should cruise in this game, with or without Selby and Robinson.
Kansas State Wildcats vs. Colorado Buffaloes: This game tips off at 8:00 p.m. (CT) on ESPNU (channel 203, Kansas City Time Warner folks). The big story with K-State these days is forward Curtis Kelly, who was reportedly being investigated by the school for violating a department policy. Frank Martin didn't confirm nor deny those accusations (though he might as well have confirmed it with the way he tried to turn the story back onto the media this week) and said he expects Kelly to be playing this weekend. K-State is a two point underdog against Colorado.
