No News Is Good News, Right?

Welcome to your Thursday Edition of the Slate. News is light and scattered today.

The big news from yesterday came from reports that three members of K-State's 2016 football recruiting class appear to be set to graduate HS early and join the Wildcats in the spring. Jon and Luke provide their insight on the betting line for five more games, for entertainment purposes only.

Nothing new today. All Quiet on the Western Front.

With the start to K-State Men's Basketball just a few short weeks away, news of a player getting arrested, even just for failure to appear, is not a good thing (Robinett, KC Star).

Wildcat Junior guard Kelly Thomson was named a Haier Achievement Award Winner. (K-State SID) The award recognizes "student-athletes for achievements beyond sports, including community involvement, academic excellence, overcoming adversity, or any of a myriad of qualities." Thomson, from Riley, KS, was a 2014 Academic All-Big 12 First Team selection and has had to battle through two season-ending knee injuries during her playing time at K-State.

The VolleyCats experienced their first taste of defeat in Bramlage Coliseum after getting swept by the No. 2 Texas Longhorns. (K-State SID) Katie Brand led the Cats with 23 assists, 15 digs, 6 kills, and 3 blocks. The double-double was her 12th of the year, best in the Big 12.
