▪ WHEN/WHERE: 7 p.m. Tuesday at Schollmaier Arena in Fort Worth, Texas

▪ TV/RADIO: ESPNews, WHB (810 AM)

▪ ABOUT KANSAS STATE (14-11, 3-9 Big 12): The Wildcats are striving to find consistency. One week after defeating then No. 1 Oklahoma, K-State responded with a pair of clunkers against Baylor and Oklahoma State, losing both games and looking inept on offense. It will try to bounce back Tuesday at TCU, but it won’t be easy. Though the Horned Frogs are the Big 12’s last-place team, they have beaten Texas and Oklahoma State at home. K-State has lost 13 consecutive road games. Bruce Weber may alter K-State’s starting lineup. Ervin has not played well since taking over for injured point guard Kamau Stokes.

▪ ABOUT TCU (11-14, 2-10 Big 12): The Horned Frogs are coming off their worst game of the season, a 73-42 loss at West Virginia. TCU wasn’t competitive against the Mountaineers and will look to play better at home against K-State. TCU has struggled in Big 12 play all season, but it has found home success, downing Texas, Oklahoma State and Tennessee. TCU lacks a go-to scorer, but several players average eight or more points. When the Horned Frogs are at their best, they have balanced scoring.
