Coming off its first two-game losing streak this season, No. 12 Kansas State will face No. 17 TCU in Manhattan, Kan., on Tuesday night, with both teams trying to stay within shouting distance of the top of the Big 12 Conference.
TCU (17-6, 6-4 Big 12) and Kansas State (18-5, 6-4) are part of a four-team logjam in third place, two games behind No. 5 Texas and a game behind 11th-ranked Iowa State. Both teams will be looking to rebound from tough losses.
TCU fell at Oklahoma State Saturday. The Horned Frogs were able to erase a 19-point, second-half deficit and even take a late lead before falling 79-73. The Frogs led 65-63 before Oklahoma State reeled off nine straight points to seal the victory.
