[March 25, 2010]  SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Time passes, but there are some things you just don't forget.

For instance, Kansas State guard Jacob Pullen will never forget the way he felt on New Year's Eve 2007 -- the night his team got blown out and embarrassed by Xavier, the same team the Wildcats face Thursday night in the West Regional semifinals.

K-State got payback for the 26-point loss -- the worst of coach Frank Martin's brief career -- with a physical, grinding 15-point win this season in Manhattan. Now, one of America's hidden little rivalries resumes, this time with the stakes ratcheted up a few notches.
