What you need to know about Kansas State
The Wildcats suffered a tough 81-60 defeat to Kansas on Tuesday. Guard David Sloan (17 points) and forward Xavier Sneed (16 points) were the top scorers for the Wildcats. James Love and Antonio Gordon will serve suspensions for their role in a late-game brawl with their rivals at Kansas. Love had only appeared in one game but Gordon averaged 5.0 points and 3.9 rebounds in 19.6 minutes per game over 16 appearances. However, with Sneed and Cartier Diarra still in action, the Wildcats have some talent on the wing that could give an Alabama defense that ranks 327th in the nation in points allowed (76.7 ppg) problems.
