▪ ABOUT KANSAS STATE (2-1): The Wildcats are trying to bounce back after a 69-60 loss at Long Beach State. On Sunday, Bruce Weber said he liked everything he saw from his team in its first two games, but moved back into learning mode in its first road game. A change in the starting lineup is possible, but Weber said he would wait and see before making any changes. K-State needs more out of Marcus Foster against Purdue. Weber said Foster pressed against Long Beach State and didn’t play within the boundaries of the Wildcats’ motion offense.
▪ ABOUT PURDUE (3-0): Purdue won its first three games in impressive fashion, but all three games were at home. Purdue coach Matt Painter says playing in the Maui Invitational will have a different feel. The Boilermakers may try and beat the Wildcats with their size. Every member of their starting lineup is 6-foot-4 or taller, much like the Kentucky team that knocked K-State out of the NCAA Tournament last year with a strong defensive effort.
