Kansas State Meets Iowa State in a Top-15 Big 12 Battle

14

Last night we saw 28 points, 15 assists and 10 boards from Caitlin Clark in Iowa’s upset win over previously undefeated Ohio State. That’s a good way to start the week! Tonight, our headline game takes place in the men’s college hoops world, where No. 5 Kansas State takes on No. 12 Iowa State in a huge Big 12 showdown. Plus, we’ve got Lakers vs. Clippers on tap in the NBA and more quarterfinal action at the Australian Open tonight.

Here’s what I’m watching today.

Men’s CBB: No. 5 Kansas State at No. 12 Iowa State

Kansas State has gone from being a preseason afterthought in the Big 12 to earning the No. 5 national ranking in mid-January. Jerome Tang’s first few months in Manhattan have been impressive. The Wildcats have asserted themselves as legitimate Big 12 title contenders behind the play of point guard Markquis Nowell and wing Keyontae Johnson. Tonight’s game is a key litmus test on the road against another top contender in Iowa State, which has also exceeded expectations under coach T.J. Otzelberger. Do the Cyclones have enough to knock off a top-five team tonight? A win would move ISU into a tie atop the conference at 6–2 in league play.
