Date: Friday, March 15th
Time: 6:00 pm
Teams: #5 Iowa State vs #1 K-State
Location: Sprint Center | Kansas City
TV/Stream: ESPN2

Prediction: Iowa State crushed Baylor, and K-State got by TCU. They both split the series against each other in the regular season. Right now, ISU looks hungrier than K-State, and I believe that the Cyclones will knock off the #1 seed tonight.

Game #8:

Date: Friday, March 15th
Time: 8:00 pm
Teams: #3 Kansas vs #10 West Virginia
Location: Sprint Center | Kansas City
TV/Stream: ESPN2

Prediction: West Virginia came out punching against Texas Tech, and fought the whole way to get the win. They clawed their way through the OU game, and came out on top. Kansas has the advantage with the crowd in Kansas City, but WVU is feeling confident as the last place team that can rise to any challenge this tournament. I’ll go with West Virginia in this one, I’d like to see a #10 seed make the conference championship game.
