Kansas State's Nae'Qwan Tomlin had some delicious NCAA tournament trash talk for Kentucky
No. 3 Kansas State does not sound all that worried to take on No. 6 Kentucky on Sunday in the 2023 men’s NCAA tournament’s round of 32.
While discussing the upcoming tournament matchup, Kansas State forward Nae’Qwan Tomlin did not seem like his team was all that concerned about playing against Kentucky’s style of basketball, per 247Sports writer Aaron Gershon.
Tomlin gave Kentucky star forward Oscar Tshiebwe his deserved flowers for what he can do on the court. Other than that, the higher-seeded Wildcats don’t seem all that worried about playing the lower-seeded Wildcats.
As the old saying goes, we’ll know soon enough if Tomlin’s confidence is warranted. We’ll also know if Kentucky catches wind of this trash talk.
All of Kansas State's players at the podium were asked about the challenges of Kentucky's style of basketball.
Forward Nae'Qwan Tomlin's answer: "I don't think it will be something that will be much of a challenge besides Oscar."

Well, Kansas State-Kentucky is going to be a fun one, if only because you’ve got a legacy program in Kentucky trying to prove itself against a higher-seeded Kansas State.
Will Tomlin’s words come back to haunt his team? Are they a sign of what’s to come? Answers will be known soon enough.
