Wildcats Snatch No. 3 Seed in East, to face Montana State


The Kansas State Wildcats were rewarded in a big way after one of the greatest regular seasons in recent history, and will head to the NCAA Tournament as a No. 3 seed.


It is the 32nd appearance all time for KSU in the big dance, and the first for head coach Jerome Tang. The Wildcats finished the regular season 23-9, and will travel to Greensboro, North Carolina for a date with No. 14 seed Montana State.


Three key players for the Wildcats will enter with postseason experience, being a part of teams that have advanced in the tournament. Keyontae Johnson was a member of the 2019 Florida Gators that advanced to the second round, David N'Guessan played for Virginia Tech when they advanced, and Desi Sills was a part of the 2019 Arkansas team that made it all the way to the Elite Eight.


Montana State is the 2-time defending champions of the Big Sky conference, and enter the game with a 25-9 record. This will be the fourth all-time meeting between the two schools, and the first in nearly 50 years when the Wildcats won 96-73 back in 1974.


Coverage of the Kansas State Wildcats and the Montana State Bobcats in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament can be heard on the Mighty 690 Friday night, with pregame at 7:30 p.m. CT and tip to come at 8:40.
