Kansas State at Oklahoma State
▪ WHEN/WHERE: Noon on Saturday at Gallagher-Iba Arena in Stillwater, Okla.
▪ TV/RADIO: ESPNews; WHB (810 AM)
▪ ABOUT KANSAS STATE: The Wildcats’s roller-coaster season continues. They hit their high last week by upsetting Oklahoma, but then fell back to earth with a loss to Baylor. Now they will try to bounce back on the road, a place that has not been good to Bruce Weber’s teams. K-State has lost 12 straight conference games, and Weber has never won in Stillwater. Wade could be the X factor. He played well against Oklahoma and then disappeared against Baylor.
▪ ABOUT OKLAHOMA STATE: The Cowboys might be without their two best players when the Wildcats come to town on Saturday. Top shooter Phil Forte is out for the season, and Jawun Evans has missed back-to-back games with an injury. If Evans is unable to play, Oklahoma State likely will struggle on offense. It hasn’t scored more than 64 points in its past three games, and one of them went to overtime. Look for Carroll and Hammonds to see larger roles if Evans is out.
