In a game that was a tale of two halves, K-State dominated the first half before falling apart in the second half against Texas on Saturday. The end result was a 75-64 loss that leaves K-State reeling with games against KU, Baylor and Missouri looming.
None of K-State's players were made available to the media afterward. Draw your own conclusions from that.
There's no rest for the frustrated. K-State gets KU in Manhattan tonight.
Bill Self is wary of a snakebitten K-State team. A cornered and wounded animal is often the most dangerous, but at some point it gives up, too. Let's hope that doesn't happen with K-State.
In its last two wins over KU in Manhattan, there's been a Michael Beasley or Jacob Pullen to pour in 25 or 38 points. It will likely take a much more balanced effort tonight if K-State is to pull the upset.
