▪ ABOUT KANSAS STATE (6-1): The Wildcats have won the six games they were heavily favored to win and lost their only toss-up to Maryland. Now comes a road test against Saint Louis. Brown has been surprisingly steady as a sophomore, emerging as K-State’s go-to scorer in every game.
▪ ABOUT SAINT LOUIS (2-4): The Billikens are 2-4 under new coach Travis Ford. They have lost three in a row and are coming off a home defeat to Samford. Ford has made strides on the recruiting trail since leaving Oklahoma State, but he inherited a roster low on talent. Agbeko is the team’s top player. He is averaging a double-double.
