Manhattan, KS– Following Saturday’s buzzer beating victory over Baylor, the Kansas State Wildcats have moved up 4 spots to No. 9 in the AP poll.
With just one week remaining in the regular season, K-State is in a great position looking ahead to the NCAA tourney. Currently projected as high as a 2 seed and as low as a 4 seed, K-state is also looking ahead to the possibility of winning their first conference championship since 1977.
With two games to play, Senior night against TCU and a road trip to No. 13 Oklahoma St., its looking to be a very big week for Kansas State basketball.
A win over both TCU and Oklahoma St., would earn K-State at least a share with the conference leading Kansas Jayhawks. But if Kansas loses at least 1 of its 2 remaining games, home against Texas Tech tonight, and a road trip to Baylor to end the season on Saturday, K-State will have a chance to win the conference outright.
If K-State manages to claim a share of the title, they will be the first team in the conferences history to claim shares of the Big 12 title in both football, and men’s basketball. A feat that will be remembered for a long time to come.
