Gisela Sanchez had a coming-out party in Kansas State's loss to Oklahoma on Wednesday. The redshirt sophomore forward tied her season high in points with 18 against the Sooners. Sanchez has actually scored 18 points in two straight games, being a threat both in the pain and outside the arc.
With Ayoka Lee being gone, Serena Sundell and Gaby Gregory are bringing more attention, so having another sharpshooter to watch out for is only good for Kansas State. The Wildcats lost a heartbreaker against Oklahoma, snapping a 14-game win streak and picking up their first loss in conference play.
Today is going to be the No. 1 offense versus the No. 1 defense. It is hard to say if this will be a high or low-scoring affair. Even with Lee out, the Wildcats need to maintain a presence in the paint on offense and defense.
I really hate picking this game because it is such a good matchup. Kansas State is coming off a loss to Oklahoma and is ready to get back in the win column, but Texas is coming off a big win against Baylor. This one is so close that I don't even know if I can call it.
Unfortunately for Kanas State, I have to give the edge to Texas for two reasons. One, Texas is at home and will have the crowd on their side. Two, Kansas State still doesn't have Ayoka Lee and she had a double-double in thier game earlier this season with 21 points and 10 rebounds. I don't want to pick Texas because I want Kansas State to come out and get the big win, but unfortunately, the odds seem stacked against them.
