Before he left the Coors Events Center on Saturday, Kansas State basketball coach Frank Martin joked that sleepless nights were ahead.
With No. 1 Texas next on the schedule, can you blame him?
From top to bottom, the Longhorns are loaded. Damion James and Dexter Pittman make up one of the nation’s best front lines, Avery Bradley is a top-notch guard and their quality backups give the Longhorns all kinds of depth.
No. 13 Kansas State gets the chance to knock off undefeated Texas on Big Monday at Bramlage Coliseum. Both coaches — Rick Barnes and Frank Martin — have been working around the clock in preparation, and a terrific game is expected. The early Vegas line has the contest as a pick ‘em.
For a closer look at the Longhorns, I have enlisted the help of Mark Rosner, who covers Texas basketball for the Austin American-Statesman.
