Unlike the previous two meetings between K-State and Baylor this season, yesterday's matchup was not decided by a single possession. It was within single digits, but that was just for appearances. Behind Perry Jones III's 31 points, Baylor cruised to an easy 82-74 win.
The loss wasted one of Jordan Henriquez's best games as a Wildcat, as the junior center scored 22 points and grabbed 14 rebounds.
This team probably isn't going to win many games where Jamar Samuels fails to grab a single rebound in almost 30 minutes of action.
Sam Mellinger wonders if this is as good as K-State can be under Frank Martin. While I really like Mellinger's writing in general, this isn't some of his best work. We all have some questions about K-State and Frank Martin, but in a season where the best point guard is a true freshman and the team is trying to replace players like Jacob Pullen and Curtis Kelly, a 10-8 finish in the Big 12 and an NCAA Tournament appearance is pretty acceptable.

Thursday was not a day for close games. KU pushed Texas A&M around in an 83-66 romp, and Missouri steamrolled Oklahoma State in an 88-70 win that wasn't anywhere near as close as it looked, before Iowa State choked away a second-half lead in a 71-65 loss to Texas that may have salvaged the Longhorns' season.
