The Kansas State Wildcats (19-9) defeated the Texas Tech Red Raiders (13-15) on Tuesday at 7 p.m. ET in a Big 12 basketball matchup. Despite the difference in records, this was set up to be a very good game. 

With March Madness right around the corner, Kansas State is looking to raise its stock to a high-middle seed in the tournament. The Red Raiders are not in the mix for the NCAA tournament this year but can still hang with the best of them, which was evident with their win over Oklahoma on Feb. 12. 

Texas Tech is scoring 70.8 points per game, while Kansas State is scoring just less than 69.3. Texas Tech is the better scoring team, and some would even say that the Red Raiders should be favored to win this matchup.

Texas Tech's Jordan Tolbert ended the game very close to a double-double with nine rebounds and ten points. 

Kansas State certainly have freshman guard Marcus Foster to thank for this win. Foster scored, a team high, 17 points. He shot 3-6 (50%) from the three point line while the rest of the team shot 3-14 (21.4%).

Do you think Marcus Foster is enough for the Kansas State Wildcats to make a run in the NCAA tournament?
