K-State Slate: 2.3.14

The Super Bowl really ended on the first play from scrimmage. - Win McNamee

A little bit of everything crossed the editor's desk this weekend.

We kept things quiet over the weekend, but expect a slew of recruiting content between now and Wednesday.

I realize some of you, for some reason, are Broncos fans instead of cleaving the Chiefs to your heart as is right and proper. As unforgivable as I find this situation, I'd still like to offer you condolences on last night's debacle, and apologize for what I am about to do.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!

And then they had Chief/Raider Marcus Allen bring the Lombardi Trophy out. Talk about trolling.

Football:

Per 247sports, K-State has offered 2016 four-star center Schnider Herard, from Plano (TX)-Prestonwood Christian. Herard is 6'10" 240, and a member of the coaching staff paid him a visit last week. His only other offer at present is from SMU, but Nebraska, Texas, Texas Tech, and TCU have their eyes on him as well.

In downer news, Alpharetta (GA)-Norcross QB A.J. Bush committed to Nebraska yesterday.

Men's Basketball:

Recaps of Saturday's loss:

More from the local beat writers: Corbitt says traveling is doing damage to the 'Cats, and that inconsistent play is a major concern. Kellis has a K-State Q&A (from before Saturday's game, but still worth a look).

Women's Basketball:

Recaps of Saturday's loss (is there an echo here?) include the official recap at K-StateSports and a story from Alex Halstead at the Non-Existent City Register.

Track:

The three-day Bill Bergan Invitational is over, and the Wildcats rocked the house. The men finished second in the ten-team field, fairly well behind Minnesota, but the women took first place. First-place finishes went to Tia Gamble in the women's 600, Alyssa Kelly in the women's long jump, Sara Savatovic in the women's weight throw, Devin Dick in the men's heptathlon, the men's 4x400 team, and Devin Field led a 1-2-3 finish in the men's long jump, topping teammates Jharyl Bowry and Tyris Jefferson. Erica Twiss came in second in the pentathlon, done in by a poor performance in the shot put; she won two of the five events (800m and 60m hurdles) and finished second in the high jump. The 'Cats took a bunch of seconds and thirds as well; full results are available via pdf.

Tennis:

K-State took both matches at home this weekend, squishing Northern Iowa 6-1 on Friday (losing only the doubles point, as Northern Iowa took two of the three doubles matches) and then sweeping Liberty 7-0 on Saturday. The Wildcats are now 3-1 on the season.

Equestrian:

Hedley Adkins -- who didn't even realize the event was all tied up as she took to the flat -- scored an 80, the highest ride of the event, on the final ride of the day to push K-State to a 10-9 win over South Dakota State in Brookings on Saturday. The Jackrabbits secured a 3-2 close edge in the Equitation Over Fences portion of the competition, but the Reiners took three out of four to put the 'Cats in front. South Dakota State took a 3-2 advantage in Horsemanship, however, to even the event at 7-7. It came down to Equitation on the Flat, and the two teams split the first four rides before Adkins secured a Wildcat victory.

Other:

Kelly McHugh runs down the top 10 moments in K-State Athletics for January.

The Week Ahead:

It's a quiet week as both basketball teams have byes for the early-week dates.

Friday at noon, the tennis team hosts Fresno State at the tennis center; they host Colorado at 2pm on Saturday to end their homestand.

At 12:30pm on Saturday, men's basketball takes on Texas at Bramlage; at 1pm, the women tip off in Morgantown against West Virginia.
