Kansas State seeded No. 11 in Midwest Regional, to Southern Cal

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas State is headed for the NCAA
tournament for the first time in 12 years.
The Wildcats and super freshman Michael Beasley are seeded
Number 11 in the Midwest Region and will play Number 6 seed
Southern Cal on Thursday in Omaha.
Adding intrigue to the match, Kansas State freshman Bill Walker
is best friends with the Trojans' star freshman, O.J. Mayo.
The two were high school teammates in Cincinnati and frequently
call and e-mail one another.

With Beasley having the best individual season in school
history, the Wildcats finished 20-and-11 in Frank Martin's first
