Yeah I just saw the piece they did on Pullen on CBS. He definitely won me over with the OT performance against Xavier. Seems like a really good guy too. I'll be rooting for K-State the rest of the way considering no other team left in the tourney means anything to me.

Kansas State can't score and aren't taking care of the ball. Their fatigue is showing.

Yup, and Butler in contrast seems very physical, quick to the ball, and sure-handed. They looked that way against Syracuse for the most part too. They play stronger than their opponent somehow despite not being "weight room" strong.

K State showing some life.

Yeah, Butler is a very good team. It's obvious the 2OT game a couple of nights ago is hurting K-State. Not only did they play a 2OT game, but they also had the late game on Thursday night, and now the early game today. Not great scheduling on the NCAA's part, but that's just the way it goes. Butler has outplayed a tired KSU team so far. Butler making the Final Four, IMO, wouldn't really be a "Cinderella" story. They're a 5 seed, which is kind of low for a FF team, but they are a good team. It's a far cry from the George Mason Final Four run.

Default NCAA Elite 8: Butler vs Kansas State

Assuming you're watching on CBS, discuss the game.

At the half, Butler is up 27-20

Curtis Kelly has 12 of Kansas State's 20 first half points

Both teams shot under 38% in the half

Butler potentially going to the Final Four is just so crazy to me. I know they've become a great program the last few years but growing up no one even knew they were D1, hell they may not have been.
