Markquis Nowell, No. 3 Kansas State out to KO No. 6 Kentucky

No. 3 Kansas State is out to knock out No. 6 Kentucky as the Wildcats look to continue their ascent up the rankings. With an 11-2 record, the Wildcats have been on a tear this season, and they have their sights set on an upset of the Wildcats.

Head coach Markquis Nowell has been at the helm of the Wildcats since 2018, and he has been instrumental in turning the program around. Nowell has implemented an up-tempo style of play that has been both exciting and effective. He has also emphasized the importance of playing defense, a key factor in the success of the Wildcats this season.

The Wildcats will be looking to capitalize on the momentum they have built over the past two months. They have won 10 of their last 11 games and have not lost since December 21. They will look to continue this impressive run against a Wildcats team that has been on a roll of its own.

The Wildcats enter the matchup with a 14-3 record, and they have won four of their last five games. They possess a formidable offense, averaging nearly 78 points per game. They also boast a solid defense, allowing just 65.5 points per game.

The Wildcats will need to be at their best if they are to pull off the upset. They will need to control the tempo of the game and limit the Wildcats’ offensive opportunities. They will also need to play lockdown defense and make the Wildcats work for every basket.

It promises to be an exciting matchup between two of the top teams in college basketball. The Wildcats will look to continue their winning ways and take another step towards the top of the rankings. But the Wildcats will be out to prove themselves and will be looking to pull off the upset.
