Photo by Jaime Green/The Wichita EagleWe’re about four hours away from tip here in Pittsburgh, where Kansas State (21-10) will take on Southern Mississippi (25-8) at 11:40 a.m. CST from the CONSOL Energy Center. The game will be broadcast on TruTv.
K-State beat writer Kellis Robinett, Eagle photog Jaime Green and myself spent most of yesterday at CONSOL for media availability, and both K-State and Southern Miss seemed pretty locked in, which usually translates itself as a subdued locker room. With this being my third year covering the tournament, I’ve seen teams show up amid distractions and seem completely unprepared (see, KU in 2010) but neither of these teams seem that way. Should be a battle.
