Kansas State played two exhibition games before opening the season on Tuesday with a 67-54 home win over North Dakota State. It marked its 30th straight non-conference home victory

The Wildcats return nine lettermen from last year’s team that posted a 25-9 overall record and earned a share of the Big 12 regular-season championship with a league mark of 14-4

UNLV’s first road game at California on Nov. 12 marks its earliest road game to start a season in program history

If it's only 3, I'd have to look at taking KSU

I read somewhere that K State has 9 people back? And shared the big 12 title...

KSU lost to UC Irvine in the first round of the NCAAs last year, lost their best 3 players, return 3 starters and 1 other rotation player from their tournament team.

 

I see no reason this line should be more than KSU -5

I think Kansas State will win, but the game can go either way.  We will have to stay out of foul trouble and be in shape.

Depth will be an issue until next year.

Thank goodness for basketball season.  After watching Baylor taken down by Washington last night it gave me a glimmer of hope that we can take down one of the lower predicted finishers in the Big 12.  Go Rebs!!!!

This game will give us some good insight in the status of our team at the beginning. It should be a good game . Sitting here watching warmups.
