What to Know

The Butler Bulldogs will square off against the Kansas State Wildcats at 6:30 p.m. ET Wednesday at Hinkle Fieldhouse. Butler is out to keep their three-game home win streak alive.

The Bulldogs received a tough blow last week as they fell 76-61 to the NC State Wolfpack. One thing holding Butler back was the mediocre play of center Manny Bates, who did not have his best game: he finished with only eight points on 4-for-11 shooting in his 33 minutes on the court.

As for K-State, they have more to be thankful for after their contest against the LSU Tigers last Wednesday. K-State had just enough and edged out LSU 61-59. The Wildcats' guard Desi Sills filled up the stat sheet, picking up 16 points and five assists.

Barring any buzzer beaters, the Bulldogs are expected to win a tight contest. Those burned by picking them against the spread last week might want to keep in mind that the team has not yet dropped back-to-back games against the spread this season.

Kansas State's victory lifted them to 6-0 while Butler's defeat dropped them down to 4-3. We'll see if K-State can repeat their recent success or if Butler bounces back and reverse their fortune.
