Men’s basketball

The men’s basketball team picked up its first win since Dec. 29 against TCU in Fort Worth, Texas, on Saturday and looks to ride that momentum as the team faces No. 9 Oklahoma on Tuesday and No. 13 West Virginia on Saturday.

Tuesday’s home matchup is Kansas State’s last home game of the season and will honor senior guard Mike McGuirl — the lone senior on the team.

The Sooners looked dominant the last time against the Wildcats, besting the team 76-50 on Jan. 19 in Norman, Oklahoma.

After Tuesday’s game, the Wildcats travel to Morgantown to play No. 13 West Virginia on Saturday to close out the regular season. West Virginia also posted a double-digit win over K-State when the teams last met, 69-47.

K-State/Oklahoma will play at Bramlage Coliseum with tip-off scheduled for 8 p.m. The game will air on ESPN2 with radio coverage on the K-State Sports Network.

K-State will play at West Virginia at 3 p.m. and will air on ESPN2 and the K-State Sports Network.

Women’s Basketball

The women’s basketball team hosts a struggling Texas Tech team on Wednesday and travels to Baylor on Saturday to round out the week.

K-State looks to get a win over Texas Tech after the 83-75 overtime loss suffered to the Red Raiders earlier this month. The Wildcats only managed to score four points in overtime.

Tip-off against Texas Tech is set for 6:30 p.m. and is available on ESPN+ and the K-State Sports Network.

The Wildcats will then travel to Waco this weekend to finish the season series against the No. 7 Baylor Bears. The Bears bested the Wildcats 64-52 when they last met. However, K-State played Baylor closer than most teams, holding the Bears to 64 points when averaging 82 points per game.

Tip-off is at 11 a.m. and is available on ESPN+ and the K-State Sports Network.

Baseball

Baseball (1-2) continues the Sanderson Ford College Classic against Gonzaga on Monday before starting a series with Western Michigan this weekend.

After a good start to the season with a win over Oregon State, the Wildcats dropped its first meeting against Gonzaga 17-5. K-State looks to regroup before a rematch on Monday at 11 a.m. Coverage is provided by FloSports and KMAN Radio.

After that, the Wildcats host Western Michigan for the first homestand of the year. The baseball team will play Friday at Tointon Family Stadium and will continue at 2 p.m. Saturday and wrap up at noon Sunday. Coverage for the games is available on ESPN+ and KMAN.

Women’s Golf

Women’s golf is back in action this week, traveling to Florida State to face off against the Seminoles.

K-State rallied back to claim fourth in the last outing at the Trinity Forest Invitational. Looking to build off of that, the team matches up with FSU all weekend. Play will begin Friday and will continue all day Saturday and Sunday.

Track

The Wildcat’s finished the Steve Miller open on Saturday and had several individual performances that look to add momentum as they gear up for the Big 12 Indoor Championship this Friday and Saturday.
