K-state played a hell of a game in Kansas but couldn't pull it off.  The final basket should not have counted as the Kansas player clearly took three steps and travelled.  Blown call but state had a chance at the end and couldn't score.

Auburn's Women have been playing very well.  They beat Tennessee at home yesterday by 18.  They are 4-1 in Conference play with the only loss against #4 South Carolina.  They play Kentucky Sunday which is a key game in the conference.

I've been disappointed by Auburn's Men this season.  I had hopes, but they have not played good defense.  They also lost their #2 scorer and rebounder for several games on a foot injury.

K-State finally closed out a close game against a top ranked team by beating West Virginia.  They may yet be ranked by the time March Madness rolls around.

ESPN has a hilarious video of Grayson about this.

Also, you know why Rat-Boy needed back surgery?
Grayson tripped him!!   :2funny:

Auburn's Men BB team beat Alabama on the road.  Since the Iron Bowl trophy was being presented, it was a large partisan crowd.

State's season is pretty much foooked.

Beat Duke at Cameron for the first time in a generation.  Lose to BC, Miami (twice!), Wake Forest, and GT.

They'll be lucky to make the NIT this year.

KState downed Baylor and now have Kansas at home for the next one.   Still possible to make the dance with a couple more quality wins.

I like it that the coach was going to have the guy run laps for missing a layup.

I know our coach is about to get shit-canned, but did Auburn forget to pack the defense against Florida?!

 (Having said that, NC St is going to give up 357854235788 points to UNC tonight)
