ABOUT TEXAS (6-6, 0-0 Big 12): The Longhorns surprisingly reside in the Big 12 basement after 12 games. Texas has struggled in Shaka Smart’s second year, falling at home to Texas-Arlington and Kent State. The Longhorns tend to get hurt by scoring funks, despite three starters averaging double figures.
ABOUT KANSAS STATE (11-1, 0-0 Big 12): The Wildcats are hoping to continue their hot start to the season in conference games. K-State has won six straight games and enters Big 12 play filled with confidence. The Wildcats slumped to a 5-13 league record last season, but are motivated for much more this time around. Johnson has been on a tear lately, rarely missing shots.
