Early Friday evening Kansas State announced that Nino Williams, and Jevon Thomas did not travel to Texas, and as a result will not play against the Longhorns. Nino will reportedly miss the game due to personal reasons, and will rejoin the team in time for the start of the Big 12 tournament. It isn't know how long Thomas will be out, as he is sitting out due to a coach's decision. With Nigel Johnson's improved play it appears he had surpassed Thomas for the starting PG position, the bigger loss here is Nino Williams. Williams has arguably been the Wildcats' best player all season, and his loss will be a huge hole to replace. Marcus Foster will surely be counted on to step up to replace Nino's missed production, and hopefully he can make that leap.
