Saturday ended up being a pretty good day in Manhattan, hopefully blunting the memory of Friday night's disaster. The scoop:
The Cats are on the verge of bowl eligibility, because they're getting better, and one guy's quietly a big part of that improvement: John Hubert.
Hubert picked up Athlon's Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week nod.
Team comes out flat and with no leadership, team loses to a Big Sky opponent. Pretty simple.
The ladies, on the other hand, are 2-0 after starting four freshmen in a runaway opening night win over Tennessee State Saturday night and then scrapping out a win over North Carolina-Charlotte yesterday. Frosh PG Leti Romero led the team both nights, tallying 16 against TSU and 25 against Charlotte -- against whom the Spanish import also led the Lady Cats in rebounds and assists.
Lady Cats finally have something go right, dispatching West Virginia in straight sets Saturday (making K-State 3-0 on the day, hooray!).
