The Gators will be matching up with their 2nd set of Wildcats within the last week when they travel to K State for a Saturday night game. Kansas State has compiled an 8-2 record with no notable wins on their resume to date. Their 2 losses came at the hands of #2 Michigan 71-57 and #14 Gonzaga 68-52. Still, this team should provide a step up in competition over their last foe and give the team some quality game experience to further hone their skills as we approach SEC play which begins January 9th. The big question to me is how well the team will respond to going on the road to a major college venue once again before the holidays. A win for the Wildcats under their new coach would be a major shot in the arm for their team this year so I think it is fair to assume they will be highly motivated when the Gators come to town.
