K-State Advances to Sweet Sixteen
It wasn’t pretty, but it was enough. Kansas State beat surprising Cinderella UMBC to advance to the Sweet 16. In the second tournament game without All-Big-XII performer Dean Wade, the Cats relied on Barry Brown’s 18 points, Makol Mawein’s 11 points, and Xavier Sneed’s clutch baskets in the final minutes to secure the win.
Next up for the Cats is the other Wildcats from the University of Kentucky, who’ll they’ll face in Atlanta on Thursday.
