The Oklahoma Sooners and the Kansas State Wildcats meet in college basketball action from Bramlage Coliseum on Wednesday.
Oklahoma comes into this one at 13-6 so far. The Sooners are 2-3 in the last five games, falling to Iowa State, Kansas and Baylor while otherwise beating TCU and Mississippi State in that span.
In the win over the Bulldogs, Oklahoma’s lead scorer was Brady Manek with 18 points, six rebounds and one assist. The only other Sooners player in double-figures there was Alondes Williams with 13 points, two rebounds and one assist.
Over on the Kansas State side, they’re 8-11 so far. The Wildcats are just 1-6 in their last seven, beating West Virginia while otherwise dropping to Oklahoma, TCU, Texas, Texas Tech, Kansas and Alabama in that time.
In the loss to the Tide, Kansas State’s Cartier Diarra led the way on 17 points, four assists and two rebounds. Xavier Sneed added 14 points and six boards there, while Makol Mawien doubled up on 13 points and 12 rebounds.
The Wildcats are 1-5 ATS in their last six home games and 0-4 ATS in their last four after an ATS win. Kansas State is 4-12 ATS in their last 16 overall and the over is 4-0 in the last four overall.
Meanwhile, the Sooners are 2-6 ATS in their last eight after an ATS loss and 2-8 ATS in their last 10 after a straight-up win. Oklahoma is 4-12 ATS in their last 16 overall and the under is 6-1 in their last seven overall.
Oklahoma has faced some tough competition over their last four games, with two ranked teams mixed in there. The Sooners kept pace pretty well with Baylor (61-57) but let Kansas come away with a 66-52 victory.
The last time these teams met was a 66-61 Oklahoma win, so look for another fairly lower-scoring game here. Kansas State has had a couple of solid scoring outings in their last few games, so I like the Wildcats to regroup here and cover.
