The Wildcats are averaging under 70 points per game away from home.

The victor of the Kansas State-Drake game will play the victor of the No. 2 Stanford-No.

Kansas State's Isaiah Maurice, left, and Wake Forest's John Collins, right, battle for a rebound in the first half of a First Four game of the NCAA college basketball tournament, Tuesday, March 14, 2017, in Dayton, Ohio.

"We're just excited to play".

"I love the opportunity for me, selfishly, and for my student-athletes to experience this because this is not what it's like at the other places", New Orleans coach Mark Slessinger said before his team's practice session Monday at UD Arena. "This is simply staying the course and staying positive and staying after it and believing". We were picked ninth in the league beforehand but we finished ahead of that prediction. "And I think that was part of the reason I bought in, especially because he was an all-time great at Kansas".

All-session tickets for the first and second rounds of the NCAA Women's Basketball tournament start at $25 and are on sale online now and will be available tomorrow at 8:30 a.m., in person at the Bramlage Coliseum ticket office or by calling 1-800-221-CATS. They lost to La Salle in his first year and Kentucky in his second year as the Wildcat Head coach. Senior forward Wesley Iwundu really makes things tick on both ends of the floor but it's guard Barry Brown's shooting that will be key to snatching a win in Dayton. "It is a big-time accomplishment for me, my teammates, and for the seniors, to go out on this note".

The Wildcats had a triumphant return to the NCAA Tournament.

Defense - or lack thereof - was ultimately the reason Wake Forest found itself in the NCAA Tournament's First Four playing against Kansas State instead of in the main field of 64. But what if the Demon Deacons don't defeat Kansas State in the First Four and the Wildcats become the No. 11 seed to UC's No. 6 seed? Ultimately, Kansas State scored on each ensuing possession after Wake Forest cut the deficit to two points or less in the second half.

The Wildcats are in the tournament for the third time in five seasons under Bruce Weber. Defensively, Wake Forest is yielding 77.9 points per game against the opposing teams.

Percentages: FG.472, FT.906. Three-Point Goals: 9-27, .333 (Arians 4-5, Wilbekin 2-4, Childress 1-4, Mitoglou 1-4, Crawford 1-5, Woods 0-5). They Demon Deacons are 19-13, but they've played a hard schedule with wins over Louisville, Miami and Virginia Tech and no bad losses.

I'll take the Demon Deacons plus-1.5 points.

"We have actually seen them play a lot throughout the whole year", Iwundu said. If KSU wants to continue dancing in March, they'll have to play better defense. "We don't just have to wait and wait to practice".

The Screamin' Demons and Office of the President organized the watch party, which begins at 9 p.m. Tip-off is at 9:10 p.m.
