Kansas vs. Kansas State: Basketball Match Prediction, Selection, Distribution, Odds, Live Stream, Watch Online, TV Channel


Just two weeks after Kansas State outlasted Kanas 83-82 in an overtime classic, state rivals clash again when the No. 8 Jayhawks host the No. 7 Wildcats in a top 10 showdown on Tuesday night. Beating KU at home was one thing, but beating the Jayhawks (17-4, 5-3 Big 12) twice would be a historic achievement for K-State (18-3, 6-2) in their first season under coach Jerome Seaweed.

The last time Kansas State beat Kansas in the regular-season series was the 1982-83 season, and the Wildcats’ last win at Allen Fieldhouse came in 2006. A win would also be Kansas State’s best overall start since 1962-63, and his best The Big 12 start in a decade. But the win in Kansas will be a tough one after the Jayhawks got back on track with a 77-68 win in Kentucky on Saturday.

Jalen Wilson continued his spectacular run against Kentucky with 22 points, averaging 28.3 points over his last four, coming from a 38-point breakout in the first meeting with K-State. Ultimately, his offensive blast in the first meeting wasn’t enough as Keyontae Johnson and Desi Sills each scored 24 points to lead Kansas State.

K-State enters Jerry Palms Bracketology as the likely No. 1 seed, while Kansas enters as the likely No. 2 seed, and the game pieces will have to weigh heavily on where they end up on selection Sunday. It also has important implications for the Big 12 title. But as important as these factors are, bragging might be the biggest prize of Round 2 of the Sunflower Showdown.

Even before its three-game losing streak, Kansas failed to destroy its opponents, winning its first three Big 12 home games against Oklahoma State, Oklahoma and Iowa State by eight points combined. All three of Kansas State’s losses are on the road, but the Wildcats also have road wins over Texas and Baylor. If K-State can beat the Longhorns and Bears from home, then it should be able to hang at Allen Fieldhouse. Prediction: State of Kansas +8.
