"We are all excited," junior K-State forward Dean Wade said. "It is kind of a relief to know where we are at and who we are playing. We don’t have to worry about being in any more. We are in, finally. We can just focus on Creighton and see what we can do there."

It's CU's second straight NCAA tournament berth. The Jays were a No. 6 seed last season, but lost in the first round to Rhode Island.
They hope to hang around a little longer this time.

To do that, they'll have to beat an opponent Friday that has special significance to CU senior Marcus Foster, who played two seasons at Kansas State before transferring. K-State coach Bruce Weber also coached against Creighton for five years as Southern Illinois' coach about a decade ago.
The Wildcats (22-11) finished fourth in the Big 12 this season.
