Your football euphoria will have to wait. Men’s basketball opens its official season tonight.
A little PTSD may kick in for K-State fans tonight, as the basketball team hosts North Dakota State to open the regular season slate. Though the basketball Bison don’t quite bring the pedigree to Manhattan that the football team did when it upset the Wildcats in 2013 season opener, NDSU did qualify for the NCAA tournament last year and is the favorite to win the Summit League. As Kellis Robinett reports for the Eagle (subscription), five starters return for the 3-point shot loving Bison, and Coach Weber expects the game to be closely contested throughout.
