Last Time Out

Last Friday, the Clones struck out at the hands of TOE while Javan Johnson led the way with 20 points on 50% shooting. The Cyclones looked out of sorts for most of the game and eventually fell by a score of 77 to 105.

About The Wildcats

Kansas State has, to put it politely, struggled this year. Coming into tonight’s game, the Wildcats are 2-4, however, they have only beaten powerhouse program UW Milwaukee by a single point and UMKC by 4. They have also fallen at the hands of unranked UNLV, THE Drake Bulldogs, Colorado and... *checks notes* Fort Hays State.

Davion Bradford led the way for KSU with 18 points against UWM, with Selton Miguel and Rudi Williams scoring 17 and 16 points, respectively.

Player to Watch

Senior Guard Mike McGuirl leads the way for the Wildcats scoring 14.5 points per game.

What Will Happen

Both fanbases will inevitably be upset, cry for their coach to be fired, and immediately shrug and start talking about football.

In all seriousness, if the Clones can’t pull this one off... Oh Boy.

Pick 3

  1. Tyler Harris makes 3 or more 3’s
  2. Cyclones out-rebound the Wildcats
  3. Iowa State plays zone at some point
