Click the jump for your daily K-State Wildcats news fix.

Once again, no Pan, so no cool logos.  Also, if anyone was waiting on a spring game report, he'll have that when he gets back.  I decided 800 miles was just a little too far to travel for a glorified practice, but Pan was there and will have the lowdown.

Baseball

From the TCJ, Cole Manbeck reports that the foundation for K-State's historic season was laid during rigorous offseason workouts.

K-State hosts Texas Tech this weekend in the final home conference series of the season.  First pitch tonight is set for 6:30 p.m.  Get out to Tointon, it's worth it to see A.J. Morris pitch.

Basketball

J-Mart hears that Frank Martin may be hot on the trail of Florida International center Freddy Asprilla, who wants to transfer now that Isiah Thomas is the coach.  Also, Denis Clemente is going to be an instructor at the elite Nike Skills Academy camps this summer.

General

Austin Meek reports that San Diego State athletic director Jeff Schemmel may, or may not, have interviewed for the same job at K-State.  Schemmel is a K-State grad, and had no comment when asked about the interview.

From 810 WBH, Curt Kitchen touches on a bunch of sports subjects, including the Bat Cats.

Former Nebraska quarterback Sam Keller is suing EA Sports for using his likeness in its NCAA football video games.  I think he only has a case if the game depicts him throwing a plastic cup at a girl's car after an argument over a parking space and during the game itself it shows his throwing motion accurately.

Fourum

Yesterday's Fourum was the last of the spring.  I know they publish the Collegian weekly during the summer, so maybe they'll have it once a week, but otherwise you'll have to find another crack fix until fall.
