“We’re a marked team but we’re still under the radar,” senior forward Thomas Gipson said Thursday. “Since I’ve been here, we don’t get the respect we deserve. We have to play with that chip on our shoulder just like the other three years I’ve been here.”

16. Kansas State (Reseed 4; previous seed: 9)

Kansas State did what Virginia couldn't do in its 50-43 win over UMBC on Sunday, the ugliest game of the weekend. The Wildcats finished 1-for-12 from the 3-point line and committed 18 turnovers. Yes, they won without Claws, but UMBC failed to score in a significant, 10-minute stretch in the second half and Kansas State could not capitalize.

But the Wildcats dominated Creighton in the opening round, also without Wade, who is dealing with a foot injury. If Kansas State duplicates Sunday's effort, however, when it faces Kentucky in the Sweet 16, oscar Weber's team will lose by 20-plus.

However, without Wade and maybe even with him, however, we clearly are the worst team in the S16. I’m just glad we’re here. It’s been a fun ride.
I've said it before and I'll say it again, K-State fans could have beheaded the entire KU team at midcourt, and K-State fans would be celebrating it this morning.  They are the ISIS of Big 12 fanbases.

16. Kansas State

Why they’re headed to the Final Four: They’re not headed to the Final Four. No team ever got the chance to play a 16-seed in a second-round game, and the Wildcats almost blew it. They might have a shot at Kentucky if Claws is able to play, and if Kentucky is freaked by the stage, but it’s tough to see K-State winning two more.

Why they'll go home: Because that's where teams go when the season is over. It’s been a good ride, though.

I sense a pattern

Keeping it close with UMBC to lull the Kentucky Cats asleep will probably go down as Weber’s most genius coaching move this decade.

I enjoyed the snark and understand why we're #16 but that guy is an idiot.  If we have a shot against Kentucky, we certainly will in the E8 game as well.

Right, hell, if somehow we go all the way to the 'ship this game could literally be the toughest team we play, no way Loyola/Nevada is a tougher game than Kentucky.

Ugly is in the eye of the beholder.  The best cow dog we ever had was ugly and off in the head.  So cats ain't beautiful or quite right in the execution department, we are in the sweet 16 and will, will, beat Kentucky to get in the elite 8.  It will be the most beautiful ugly win ever.

I agree that it was ugly, but great defense often has this effect.

Defense is half of the game; we are playing excellent on that half.

If Wade comes back, I think we are dancing to San Antonio.

Without Wade, we probably won't. But Kentucky is a 5 seed for a reason.
