KU, K-State to meet in Big 12 semifinal showdown

Kansas Malik Newman drives with the ball during the second half of an NCAA college basketball game against Iowa State in Ames Iowa Tuesday Feb. 13 2018. Kansas won 83-77

Fourth-seeded Kansas State (21-10) and No. 5 seed TCU (21-10) are likely in the NCAA field, but a loss for either of them could mean the first-four game that the Wildcats played in last season. No. 9 Oklahoma (ESPNU), 7 p.m.

Kansas basketball is back in the Big 12 tournament semifinals. Final Four Big 12 action will feature a Friday doubleheader.

Although Self said he was not complaining about the result, it was crystal clear, both through his words and those of the Kansas players scattered throughout the KU locker room, that a similar showing on Saturday would not lead to the same result.

The 2018 Big 12 Tournament is down its two semifinal games on Friday, March 9, 2018. But in the 14-point home loss against the Jayhawks two weeks later, Brown and Diarra tallied just 14 points on 5-of-20 shooting and 1-of-7 from deep. Matt Coleman added 20 points, while center Mo Bamba returned from a three-game absence due to a left toe injury to finish with 10 points and four boards. The Jayhawks had a rate of 0.632 (above their season average of 0.577), while the Cowboys posted a mark of 0.447 (below their season average of 0.506).

Kansas is 3-2 ATS with 3 overs and 2 unders over their last five games. Kansas State tries to slow games down while Kansas often pushes the tempo with a roster built on good guards.

Cook announced Friday that he is seeking to gauge the league's interest after he led Iowa with 15.3 points and 6.8 rebounds a game in 2017-18.

Jason Keeling, American Red Cross said, "Around 39 people died in 2017 in West Virginia because their smoke alarms didn't work". The La Crosse Fire Department says the bi-annual time change is also a good chance to review your family's fire escape plan.

Keenan Evans led the Red Raiders with 25 points, and he contributed a pair of threes as Texas Tech shot a blistering 9-of-16 from beyond the arc.

The most electric player in college basketball seems to have lost confidence in his shot since his wonderful first half of the season. And Kansas' first game in K.C. will be against a foe who has served as the Jayhawks' kryptonite this year - Oklahoma State.

The crux of the issue was OU's 35 3-pointers. Junior guard Alex Robinson scored 16 points on 6-of-15 shooting to go with a game-high 6 assists and 3 steals in 42 minutes.

But you can also point fingers at the Sooner coaching staff, suggesting that they didn't have the team sufficiently prepared to play and didn't make the right adjustments to counter how teams were playing them over the second half of the Big 12 round-robin schedule.

Freshman G Marcus Garrett (4.4 ppg, 3.5 rpg) is third on the team with 33 steals, trailing Graham's 53 and Mykhailiuk's 37. Here are few things to know when the Jayhawks meet Kansas State in round three of the Sunflower Showdown. Since Feb. 12, 1994, Kansas has won 56 of the last 61 meetings with K-State.

TCU had never lost to the Wildcats in the postseason, beating them in the NCAA, NIT and Big 12 tournaments over the years.

USA economy gains 313000 jobs in February
Investors seem to believe the February numbers will keep the Fed on track to raise interest rates slowly and steadily. Wages increased just 0.1 percent month-over-month in February, missing the consensus target of 0.2 percent.

Head coach Bill Self's Kansas team broke even with the spread this year. Bruce Weber is 2-13 against Kansas, all while at KSU.

Before you pick a side in this game, listen to what SportsLine expert Kenny White has to say.

The Jayhawks earned the regular season title, and they've won 14 consecutive and 61 overall conference titles, which are NCAA records.

The Kansas Jayhawks may be shorthanded, but they are still a talented basketball team.

From there, Kansas was simply too much for the Cowboys in the second half despite 17 points from Jeffrey Carroll and 14 from Kendall Smith. "They were more aggressive in the first half, when they popped a little bit of a lead, and again when we got close in the second half".

In the second matchup of the night session, West Virginia faced off with Baylor.
