Cats wait for NCAA seeding

By Joel Jellison

When the Kansas State men’s basketball team watches Selection Sunday today, bracketology experts expect the Wildcats to fall somewhere on the 8-10 seed line.

The Wildcats (20-12) are assumed to be one of seven Big 12 teams that will hear their name called at 5 p.m. on CBS, but analysts are divided on where K-State might be headed.

CBS’ Jerry Palm picked the Wildcats to be a No. 9 seed and play No. 8 Colorado in Orlando. The winner would likely matchup with No. 1 seed Florida.

Joe Lunardi of ESPN believed K-State to be a fit as a 9 against Memphis in San Diego. The winner could meet up with Arizona, however, those Wildcats lost to UCLA on Saturday.

USA Today’s Shelby Mast liked the Wildcats as a 9 in Milwaukee, against No. 8 Oregon. The winner could meet up with Michigan in that matchup.

Absent from the experts late Saturday night was the potential of the Wildcats playing in St. Louis, where Wichita State is expected to be the No. 1 seed.
