I've been sleep deprived for about 4 days so forgive me.
#17 in the country with a VERY impressive win at UNLV and wins against Washington State and Xavier... this is one of the surprise teams in the country. I thought they'd drop quickly when Huggins left them for West Virginia, but Frank Martin has done a nice job there.
From the KSU website if you want to read their preview.
- 81.6 PPG
- 47.2% FG
- 37% 3pt FG
- +4.3 rebound margin
- 14.8 turnovers per game
Prediction: neutral site game that should be mostly Alabama fans... but I don't think we have an answer for Jacob Pullen. We match up size wise with them nicely (they have a 7 footer, but he sees limited action), but something about this game doesn't sit right with me. Kansas State by 8 in Mobile.
Game time is around 8PM CST on CSS. 7:30PM is the official tipoff, but I suspect it'll be closer to 8. I'll probably follow it on the net.
