K-State Slate: 3.24.11

Because both stories are behind a paywall, I can't link them, but apparently both Angel Rodriguez (5'11" PG, Dr. Krop High School-FL) and Omari Lawrence (6'4", SG, Transfer-St. John's) have decided to make it official that they're coming to KSU next fall. Angel verbally committed last fall, but did not sign right away. Lawrence's story is a bit more complex, and involves a stopover at Cloud County, after spending his Freshman year at St. John's. One of the top available Juco players in the country, Jeremy Jones, a 6'1" shooting guard from Seward County, will visit Manhattan on April 8.

Congratulations to Beth Mendenhall and Derek Ziegler, as they brought home a national championship in debate for Kansas State. Another K-State team, consisting of Megan Hallinan and Caitlyn Reynolds placed 17th at the same competition.

Well, it's official: Mike Anderson is a Hog--in more ways than one. Apparently, his players  found out when we all did, which I personally think is pretty crappy. Our friends at RockMNation are getting a quick start on the coaching search.

In BatCat news, Nick Martini is really REALLY good at getting on base, having done so in a nation-leading 79 straight games. If he keeps it up for 8 more games, he will break the unofficial record (the NCAA doesn't officially track the statistic) of 86 games, set by Elon's Cory Harrilchak. The Cats (12-7. 0-3) are off to a slow start in Big 12 play, having been swept by UT in their conference-opening series, losing late leads in the final two games of the series. They go back to Texas this weekend, this time to take on #21 Baylor in Waco, greatly needing a series win, as opening conference at 0-6, or even 1-5 would put the Cats in a dangerous position.

Golfer Paige Osterloo finished 6th at the BYU Invitational, after carding a final round 74. No word as of yet on whether or not she celebrated the achievement with a cup of joe.

Oh, and there are  some games tonight, featuring some of our old friends, and a kid named Kemba.
