<section class="s-news"><p>Jake Trotter at the ESPN(blog) reviews K-State's spring game. The BotC consensus is that you should read Derek Smith's piece on the game instead.

<section class="s-news"><p>K-State wraps up its road schedule at TCU this weekend. This is the BatCats first trip to Fort Worth since 1987. K-State is coming off a series loss to West Virginia, while TCU is riding a nine-game win streak, and has won 16 of the last 17 games. No lineups have been announced as of this writing. Notably, TCU's usual Friday starting pitcher, Brandon Finnegan, is injured and will not play.

Meanwhile, Ross Kivett was one of five Big 12 baseball players named to the Capital One Academic All-District Team. He was the only player from K-State on the list.</p>
