Pick

Kansas State is coming off a great win against Michigan State, which may have been the game of the tournament so far. Markquis Nowell, the Kansas State point guard, had 19 assists in the win, but he did injure his ankle in the second half. Nowell will definitely play in this game, but it will be interesting to see if he continues to be hobbled by the injury. FAU had a nice win against Tennessee on Thursday, but I think their run is going to come to an end here. Kansas State is going to be too much for the Owls and I like the Wildcats to pull away in the second half.
