Jevon Thomas will officially become an active K-State Wildcat Saturday, but Bruce Weber says he won't play against Gonzaga. Tulane? Maybe.
The Lady Cats kicked off the day with a 73-64 win over Cal-Santa Barbara. They've now won three in a row, which they haven't done since the start of last season. Leti Romero led the way with 15 points, and led by as many as 12 before a Gaucho run closed the gap to a single basket with just over three minutes left. But a Bri Craig three-pointer pushed the lead back to give, and the ladies were effective from the stripe down the stretch to close out the win.
Track and Field:
The Wildcats rocked the house at the K-State Winter Invitational. The men defeated Oklahoma State 91-35 in their head-to-head meet, while the women dispatched Nebraska-Omaha 70-47 and Oklahoma State 70-55 in their three-way competition. Sara Savatovic set the Serbian national record in the weight throw at 64' 3", Tia Gamble set the school record in the 300m at 39.44, and Carlos Rodriguez also set a school record in the 300m at 33.60.

Army fired Rich Ellerson ... North Dakota State promoted defensive coordinator Chris Klieman to replace the departing Craig Bohl (and in the process scuttling Bohl's plan to take his entire staff with him to Wyoming) ... Florida Atlantic replaced interim coach Brian Wright, who in turn had replaced Carl Pelini, with Arkansas defensive line coach Charlie Partridge ... Jameis Winston won the Heisman, and some nonsense or other went down in Austin.
Finals, finals, finals, finals, finals. There is absolutely nothing going on during the week this week, so I guess we're going to have to get creative.
Saturday, two basketball games. The men take on Gonzaga at Intrust Bank Arena in Wichita at 2:30pm. The ladies travel to Hampton, Virginia for a 3pm tip against, well, you know, Hampton.
