What to Know
The Kansas State Wildcats will take on the Wichita State Shockers at 6 p.m. ET Sunday at Intrust Bank Arena. These two teams seek to continue their momentum from their previous wins.
K-State took their game against the Albany Great Danes this past Wednesday by a conclusive 71-43 score.

Meanwhile, Wichita State bagged a 60-51 win over the Oklahoma State Cowboys this past Wednesday. Among those leading the charge for Wichita State was guard Ricky Council IV, who had 17 points along with seven rebounds.
K-State is expected to lose this next one by 4. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread, however, as they are currently on a three-game streak of ATS wins.
The wins brought K-State up to 4-2 and the Shockers to 6-1. A couple stats to keep an eye on: The Wildcats have been holding their opponents to a field goal percentage of 37.10%, which places them 18th in college basketball.
