ABOUT GARDNER-WEBB (7-5): The Runnin’ Bulldogs are coming off their biggest win of the season, a 70-62 road upset of Nebraska. Gardner-Webb took a sizable lead early and held off the Cornhuskers in the second half. It will try for its second-straight victory against a power-conference team on Wednesday against K-State.

ABOUT KANSAS STATE (10-1): The Wildcats are off to their best start under coach Bruce Weber. The only game they have lost was by one point to Maryland on a neutral court. They are coming off a decisive victory over Colorado State in Denver. Reserve forward Isaiah Maurice was suspended in that game. His status for Wednesday’s game is unknown.
