Hey, appearance, we alerted you. Certain, it still went in some way even worse than anticipated, however at the very least the indication were all there. Allow's never ever mention that video game once more beyond whispers in back spaces as well as dark streets.

Today, the Wildcats have a legit opportunity to return on the appropriate track. It's still mosting likely to be a challenging video game, yet there are real, concrete factors the Wildcats have a possibility in this one to grab their initial win of 2021.

Initially, the Bruce Weber definitely had essentially every one of his gamers previously today, however it was their very first video game all back with each other and also nobody looks great coming off a COVID break. Today, all the people have actually had an opportunity to exercise with each other, as well as underwent a video game with each other, so they ought to have the ability to look closer to what they are absolutely with the ability of this period.

Second, Texas A&M isn't truly far better by any type of statistics than the Wildcats. Actually, while they are a better protective group, they are really even worse in a number of groups according to KenPom, as well as have not needed to play the second-best group in the nation (two times) to synthetically decrease their numbers. The Aggies route the Wildcats in both Adjusted Infraction and also Adjusted Pace. This isn't a group that's mosting likely to have the ability to flee from the Wildcats, and also a close video game is a video game K-State can in fact win.

Currently, appearance, all that positive outlook includes a significant caution tag. These are still Bruce Weber's Wildcats. This is still the exact same group that shed to Ft Hays State, as well as had problem with UMKC as well as UNO. If K-State can draw this off, it's mosting likely to be a low-scoring slugfest, as well as the margin will certainly be at-most 3 factors. It's still a lot more most likely that the Wildcats shed today based upon this period's efficiencies thus far, yet a minimum of there's an opportunity.
