i have no idea. I think KU wins big. They are pretty focused. But, if it is a close game, K-State could win because if their two man show is on, they can be very good and beat anybody. They are not to good on the road so my prediction, 88 to 69 with KU winning pretty easy like.

However, Beasley is the real deal. If I were Bill Self, I say let Beasley go crazy. Shut down their guards and keep Walker somewhat in check and KU wins big time. It would be interesting to see the KSU freshman play all four years and see what they could do. But, fortunately for KU, it will never happen. Beasley goes pro this year and Walker will go next year.

Snap, I think you did that joke last time the LJworld asked this question. Someone did anyway. No offense, but it is still not funny.

I expect that the team who puts more points on the scoreboard before the final horn goes off will be declared the winner.

if Self wises up and leaves Collins on the bench KU will win...if not Collins will cost us yet another victory. Rocky- I beleive that infidel was reffering to a statement that Beasley himself made...."we gonna beat them in Africa" my question has always been, if Beasley is this good, why Kstate? why not a school that is more of a championship contender?

infidel785. You might want to be thinking of what your new posting name will be. How did some of your posts survive this long...amazing.

well, at least some of us got it. :D

Just love you people!

My guess is this:

Beasely will have the game of his life (as one player on EVERY team does against us), K-State will hit every prayer they throw up, they will hit 11 3's and shoot 11 more free throws than us. All of that said, KU wins by 6. Then Beasely can go back to Africa...

Expectations for a basketball game? Given the reality of college/pro sports, basketball fulfills two primary expectations: 1.) profits for the school or owner, 2.) a way for profit-producing players to avoid incarceration.

A hot date with either mary or brittney....:)

R_I - Do you also expect them to be prepared? I sure hope that KU is!

I expect strong skating, hard checking, and hopefully some good goaltending.

Oops, wait. That's what I expect out of the high school hockey game I'm photographing tonight. My basketball season ended last night when my local high school team lost on a last-second shot.

I predict embarassment here and jubilant mayhem in Aggieville.

Darrell Arthur has to stay out of foul trouble because they will be looking right off to get him reaching, Mario has to look for his shot on the perimeter. We have to have an outside game and an inside game. Brandon has to be active all over the court. Play their D.

The high screens have to be executed like they are supposed to actually peel off a defender not because the coach said so. The ball handlers have to USE the screens. Inside, outside, pick and roll. Execute. Call it a W.

It is a game that should separate us as the better team from the Wildcats, who have immense talent and youth. We should beat them at home, after going through some conference doldrums in the last several weeks! Beasley the Beast will have another incredible game, but we will ultimately be the better team!

I expect that they will be trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent.

A bunch of tall guys will run back & forth. They'll also jump a lot.

I expect some will be happy, some will be sad, and total anarchy and mayhem downtown with either team winning.
