The game was ugly but survive and advance is the key this time of year. The Jayhawks won both regular-season meetings versus the Wildcats and will meet their in-state rival for the 23rd time in conference postseason tournament play and the 10th time in the Big 12 era.
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. KU also averages 17.0 assists, 6.6 steals and 4.3 blocked shots per game.
Cartier Diarra scored at the other end for Kansas State, knotting the game 53-all.
Kansas ranks 145th in rebounds per game (35.4) while Kansas State ranks 277th (30.6).
The 2018 Big 12 Player of the Year and on every national player of the year watch list, senior G Devonte' Graham leads Kansas in scoring at 17.3 points per game. Kansas avenged a loss to Oklahoma State last night, but I am not sure the Jayhawks will have the same motivation to beat K-State a third time.
No. 8 Oklahoma State Cowboys, 68 vs.
Ever since OU super freshman Trae Young launched 39 shots, nearly half of the Sooners' total shot attempts - in a January 20 overtime loss at Oklahoma State, the nation's scoring and assist leader has taken fewer shots and is making fewer of them.

Ronaldo scores 2 to give Real Madrid 2-1 win at Eibar
But Ronaldo proved the difference again, the 33-year-old taking his tally for the season to 35 goals in 37 appearances. Former Wigan defender Ivan Ramis headed in an equaliser for Eibar and it looked like they would secure a point.
"Hopefully solidified our chance to be in the NCAA tournament", coach Bruce Weber said.
The Longhorns weren't almost as efficient as their counterparts-they shot 43.1 percent from the field and 38.9 percent from three-but Jacob Young's out-of-nowhere eruption off the bench kept them afloat. Texas' Jacob Young tallied a game-high 29 points, but it wasn't enough to lift the Longhorns to their second win of the tournament. With that in mind, they gave the ball to Barry Brown behind the arc and he drove at the basket before pulling back for a jumper near the free-throw line as the clock ticked under 10 seconds.
The Longhorns erased a double-digit deficit to eliminate the reigning conference tournament champs.
