Radio: KCSP (610 AM)
The Lowdown: Kansas State beat George Washington and lost to Arizona State on its way to a third-place finish at the Las Vegas Invitational. Now the Wildcats return home for a less demanding game against Oral Roberts, which has lost six straight since opening the year with a win over a NAIA opponent.
K-State player to watch: Makol Mawien. Oral Roberts likes to play a big lineup that features two forwards and a center, so this could be a challenging game for K-State’s top inside presence. It will be interesting to see how he matches up against players of similar size.
Oral Roberts player to watch: Albert Owens scored 33 points and grabbed 10 rebounds in his last game against Oakland. The senior is one of the best mid-major centers in the nation. He averaged 17.4 points and 5.6 rebounds last season.
This will be the second game of the season against a Big 12 opponent for Oral Roberts. It lost 91-48 at Oklahoma State two weeks ago. Expect a similar score at Bramlage Coliseum.
