Make it a double! K-State wins Big 12 titles in football, men's basketball

USA TODAY Sports

It didn't happen the way we would've preferred, but it happened nonetheless. K-State adds a Big 12 men's basketball championship, its first conference title since 1977, to the football championship it won earlier this school year.

After K-State lost a hard-fought game in Stillwater earlier today, I suspect a lot of you reacted like me. We sulked, assuming K-State's chance to join Texas and Oklahoma as the only Big 12 schools to win football and men's basketball championships in a single year was gone. Like most, I simply assumed KU would run moribund Baylor out of the very State of Texas.

A mere four hours later, all those green Fake Patty's Day shirts in Aggieville are coming in handy, as the Bears waxed KU to hand K-State a share of its first conference men's basketball championship since six years before I was even born. And to think, I turned down a chance to meet up with Panjandrum and others to watch the late game because I assumed all was lost.

Congratulations to Bruce Weber and the entire coaching staff, and all the players on the roster for an exciting conference season. Now, let's go get three wins in Kansas City.

Go Cats!
