K-State Slate: 2.22.12


K-State Basketball

K-State played its best game of the season in a 78-68 win over No. 3 Missouri in Columbia. Rodney McGruder led the way with 24 points, but among the games played by Angel Rodriguez, Thomas Gipson, Jamar Samuels and Jordan Henriquez, it's hard to set one above the other.

You guys called it in the open thread. We all knew a run by Mizzou was coming at some point in the second half. But K-State answered big shots by the Tigers time and again to prevent a backbreaking, crowd-exciting run.

Improves NCAA chances? We're in now, unless we manage to lose our last three and the first game of the Big 12 tournament. In any event, with the last two wins, K-State now has a chance to play its way out of the 8-9 matchup and give itself a decent chance to make the second weekend.

Jordan Henriquez is now the career blocks leader at K-State. For a kid who's been questioned so often, that has to be a good feeling.

K-State's length and physicality bothered Missouri, again. The bottom line is that basketball is about matchups, and K-State is a bad matchup for Mizzou.

K-State Football

B.J. Finney makes Andy Staples all-star team for recruits who were rated two stars or lower.

Land Thieves

Oklahoma's Jay Norvell may have committed a recruiting violation by offering a recruit a scholarship via Twitter.

Poor Aggy

Let's see. Should Texas A&M allow a group of attractive women to patrol the sidelines of Kyle Field during A&M football games and, when music is played, dance as a group? Nah, that would take away from the game-day atmosphere. I mean, I get it, why would you want to showcase this group more often than necessary (probably safe for work, but you're warned that it is a photo of TAMU's dance team in uniform).
