Kansas State hung tough with Syracuse for about thirty minutes, but they weren't able to come away with the win. The game was probably closer than the final score indicates, but hey, them's the breaks.
I'll let the better writers come up with something more poetic to say, but hop on in and celebrate and/or mourn the season.
