Kansas State Basketball: Wildcat's wild win in Big 12 quarterfinals guarantees NCAA Tournament bid

Kansas State Tops TCU in OT: Kansas On Deck

Kansas State advances to play Kansas Friday in the semifinals. "This is the time of year that everybody in America plays with energy and enthusiasm and the game's more alive and we didn't play like that tonight". That should give the Jayhawks confidence if he misses any NCAA Tournament games.

KU for the second straight night was led by Newman, who had a career-high 30 points against Oklahoma State on Thursday.

Kansas opened as a 5-point favorite, while the game's Over/Under (O/U) has been set at 141.5 points.

The Kansas Jayhawks may be shorthanded, but they are still a talented basketball team.

CBS Sports' Jerry Palm does not have Oklahoma State in the field and does not list it as one of the "First Four Out". With 16 points on 6-for-7 shooting, Makol Mawien was Kansas State's high scorer. "Hopefully one day I will have a really good relationship with them, but at the same time, I'm going to have to compete against them".

The game wasn't without drama. Malik Newman poured in 22 points, Silvio De Sousa filled in admirably for ailing big man Udoka Azubuike and ninth-ranked Kansas beat short-handed Kansas State 83-67 to reach the Big 12 Tournament title game.

Then, down two points with just 1.3 seconds left in the extra session, the Horned Frogs had the opportunity to tie the game after Alex Robinson was fouled driving to the hoop.

Theo Pinson, who dropped the ball out of bounds with 11 seconds left, made two free throws with 3.2 seconds left to seal it. Mykhailiuk is averaging 15.2 points per game along with 4.2 rebounds per game.

Regardless of the result, both schools are safely in the NCAA tournament field. Kansas State could use this win a lot more than the Jayhawks, so I will take the points.

Kansas State prepares for its Big 12 Tournament semifinal.

Both teams continued their late-season collapses Tuesday by losing early in their respective conference tournaments.

The Horned Frogs will head back to Fort Worth and await their NCAA Tournament destination. The transfer from Mississippi State followed up his career-best 30-point effort in a quarterfinal win over Oklahoma State with another virtuoso performance.

Senior guards Daxter Miles Jr. and Jevon Carter scored 22 and 17 points, respectively, as West Virginia held off Texas Tech.

Texas Tech is tough.

"Hopefully, that solidifies our chance to be in the NCAA Tournament".

The Longhorns weren't almost as efficient as their counterparts-they shot 43.1 percent from the field and 38.9 percent from three-but Jacob Young's out-of-nowhere eruption off the bench kept them afloat. The Longhorns used hot shooting from guard Jacob Young to sneak back in the game and narrow the gap at halftime.The sophomore finished with 29 points on 11-for-17 shooting, including six-for-seven on three pointers.He had help from freshman guard Matt Coleman, who poured in 20 points, but their efforts were still not enough.

But because of games that happened almost five months ago, the Cowboys will have to wait until Sunday to know whether those 10 people deem them worthy.

The Longhorns erased a double-digit deficit to eliminate the reigning conference tournament champs. Meanwhile, Oklahoma is one of the "Last Four In" like Lunardi has, playing a play-in game against Louisville as a No. 11 seed in the first round.

According to oddsmakers, West Virginia is favored in this game, as the Mountaineers are getting odds of -2 points against the Red Raiders.
