Kansas State might have been a surprise to get into the field but they won their First Four game so they come in with some momentum.
Cincinnati has been waiting all season to get to this point to show that their improved offense can propel them further this season.
Cincinnati had only 5 losses all season and all but one were to Tournament teams – UCF was the outlier. This team knows how to win but can they win the big games.
They come into this year’s event with a defense ranked 5th in the nation giving up 60ppg. But the offense is actually good this season, almost 75ppg.
Jacob Evans has assumed the role of top scorer but really he and Kyle Washington are right there. Washington is a big who can score inside and out.
Still Troy Caupain is going to be key. He has been awful shooting this season but he is a senior and will keep at it. If he gets hot this team can win some blowouts the way they play D.
Kansas State Wildcats
There is nothing fancy about this K-State team. They just compete and in a league with more talented teams they win a fair bit.
The Wildcats are led by Wesley Iwundu. He is a no frills senior who has gotten better every year by competing against good competition. He won’t be phased by the physical style of the Bearcats.
KSU gets balanced scoring with Iwundu one of four players averaging between 10 and 13ppg. This is not a flashy group but they share the ball well.
DJ Johnson is one of those four and he gives the Wildcats a presence in the post. He scored 18 points in the win over Wake Forest. They need him to play well and not foul.

Free Cincinnati Bearcats vs. Kansas State Wildcats NCAAB Prediction:
I am not high on KSU other than liking the fact that they have a game under their belt.
I think Cincy will be able to overpower them and cover.
