March Madness is here, and the Kansas State Wildcats are finally returning to the Big Dance. A strong season for K-State earned them a No. 3 seed in the East Region, where they’ll begin play in Greensboro, N.C.
This will be the Wildcats’ first tournament bid since the 2019 season, and the East Region looks to be a tough road for any team looking to advance to the Final Four. Still, a ticket to the BIg Dance is quite a feather in the cap of first-year head coach Jerome Tang.
In terms of upsets, the Wildcats don’t have a lot to be concerned about historically, as the No. 14 seeds have only upset the No. 3 seeds 22 times (15.3 percent) in tournament history.
Here’s when and where to watch the Kansas State Wildcats in the NCAA Tournament.
