ST. LOUIS, Mo. -

Hey girl can you post this before the KSU game begins please?! I would be so grateful!

The K-State Wildcats have nothing to lose against Kentucky. Of all three Kansas teams, K-State has gotten the shaft. They are in one of the furthest hotels from the Scottrade Center, the last game of the day and few others seem to be giving them the coverage they deserve.

In the locker room yesterday every Wildcat knew no one expects them to win. They are the underdogs of Kansas and they know it. The match up greatly favors Kentucky and no one is denying it.

"I mean, we're not being talked about as much as the other teams here," said Will Spradling."Obviously Kentucky has the name and tradition but we have the same record."

The same record, sure, but the Big 12 has proved to be one of the toughest schedules in college basketball.

"I felt we had a tougher schedule, a lot tougher league and a lot tougher games that are going to have us ready (for Kentucky)," Spradling added.

Overlooked and underestimated. Does that sound familiar? These Wildcats have learned from last years loss to LaSalle. Plus we've seen the upsets already taking place in this NCAA tournament. From what I've observed and heard, Kentucky very well could be next.
