ABOUT KANSAS STATE: (8-1): The Wildcats improved to 8-1 with a victory over Prairie View A&M on Tuesday, but they remain largely untested. Other than a neutral-court game against Maryland their schedule has been soft. Washington State could be their second-toughest opponent yet. K-State plays a name opponent each December on a neutral court and tends to play well in these games.
ABOUT WASHINGTON STATE (5-4): The Cougars are expected to be one of the Pac-12’s worst teams. Their 5-4 start lacks a quality victory. But they have won two of their past three games under coach Ernie Kent. Washington State will be the biggest team K-State has faced this season, as it starts a pair of tall forwards. Hawkinson is averaging a double-double.
