Kansas State senior guard Markquis Nowell works with the ball during the Wildcats’ 76-49 exhibition win over Washburn on Nov. 1, 2022, at Bramlage Coliseum. Nowell was named Big 12 Player of the Week on Monday.

Following their first road test of the season, a nine-point win over California last Friday, the Kansas State men return home Thursday for a final tune-up before their tournament in the Cayman Islands.

The Wildcats (2-0) play winless Kansas City as part of a double-header with the K-State women and head coach Jerome Tang is hopeful that his team can continue taking positive steps as they navigate their way through the non-conference.
