The Kansas State Womens Basketball team travels to Kansas tommorow for the first installment of the Sunflower Showdown of 2005. Kansas State just got thrashed by Iowa State @Ames, and Kansas held their own @Austin, so this could be a good matchup. Tip off at 7:00 pm, Allen Fieldhouse. Tickets are $15 (KU jacked up the price for this game), and children under 13 get in free.

I've been watching Womens basketball more often now. Its pretty entertaining, as it seems like more of a "pure" version of the game. Emphasis is placed on shooting, not driving to the basket and dunking / lay up.

My bold prediction? Kansas State 75 Kansas 69

I feel it will be closer than most think. Cats need a big game from Kendra Wecker AND Laurie Koehn to win this one.

They're only paying $15 for people to attend this game? Not enough for me to sit through it.

I think regular games are 5 or 6 bucks, maybe 7. Kansas State charges $7 for GA, $8 for reserved. KU is charging $15 because they know the K-State fans will pay.

This is exactly why womens basketball will never be as popular as mens. There are not enough basketball "purists" left to appreaciate that style of play. Todays generation finds that style of playing boring in comparison to LeBron, Kobe, Shaq and Jordon ball.

Well, that could be "one" reason...there are quite a few others.

As far as purists appreciating the style of play, i'm no purist, but every womens BBall game i've gone to makes Bramlage look like a retirement home. Not too many people under 70 years old...

I'd rather take an hour on the rack.
