About No. 8 Creighton

Marcus Foster and Khyri Thomas combine for one the most dangerous wing duos in college hoops. Creighton is in its fifth tournament under Greg McDermott, and this is the second-best team he's had in Omaha.

About No. 9 Kansas St.

Kansas State isn't particularly flashy in one area, but it absolutely knows its identity: Barry Brown and Dean Wade. The two Wildcats veterans do it all for Bruce Weber's team, and they've got the goods to win in the Big Dance much like they did last season. Playing against a team that forces the tempo and clashes with its grind-you-out style, though, could be problematic.
