Key matchups

Tonight is Senior Night for Kansas State where the Wildcats will recognize three seniors, Rebekah Dallinger, Gabby Gregory, and Ayoka Lee. The Wildcats are coming in with a 17-game home winning streak and look to continue that tonight. The Wildcats need to win this game and their final one on Saturday to stay in contention to host games during the NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament.

Of course with Lee in the lineup, all eyes are always on her. She has led the Wildcats in points in the last two games, dropping 34 in 26 minutes against West Virginia. Lee is a cornerstone for this team both offensively and defensively. She needs just four blocks to become the first player in program history with 300 career blocks.

However, Lee can not do it all on her own. She leads the team with 14 points in their upset loss against Kansas. Other stars on the team such as Gregory, Serena Sundell, and redshirt freshman Zyanna Walker need to step up as well, especially from behind the arc. Lee can pound the paint and guards can drive to the basket, but they need a presence around the three-point line against Iowa State.

In their first matchup, Iowa State was 9 for 19 from behind the arc compared to Kansas State's 8 for 24. The Wildcats allowed Iowa State's Abby Brown and Audi Crooks each to drop 20 points. they have to limit big numbers by the Cyclones. The Wildcats also need to be more aggressive in crashing the glass, the Cyclones out-rebounded the Wildcats 47-39 in thier first matchup.


I don't think the Wildcats are going to let the Cyclones come in and do what they did in Ames on their home court. I think the festivities of Senior Night and the fact that they are playing at home will give the Wildcats everything they need to win this game.

Kansas State played a hard-fought full game against West Virginia and then let a halftime lead go against Kansas. This team needs to come out and play like they did last time they were at home and put this game away early. Iowa State is still in contention for the NCAA Tournament, so they are going to come out firing on all cylinders and the Wildcats need to be ready.

I am going to take Kansas State in this one, I think they will get revenge on their loss just a couple of weeks ago. I don't think Iowa State will make it easy for them, but I think Gabby Gregory will go off on her Senior night and of course Ayoka Lee as well.
