Meet Kamau Stokes: K-State's Freshman Leader

New, 62 comments

Similar to the roller coaster season Kansas State has had, Kamau Stokes has been on a roller coaster himself. He appears to have leveled off a bit and as a result the teams level of play has increased.

Yesterday was dominated by our newest staff member, as sprotsGAT lead off with a fanshot about this past weekend's 2016 coaching legends celebration. She then followed with a post about Kansas State's newest commit, Breontae Matthews.

Recruiting is heating up, and Kansas State got a huge boost yesterday, securing a commitment from three-star tackle Breontae Matthews. (Kellis Robinett, KC Star)

Kamau Stokes has had an up and down freshman year. The high point was his 24 point performance against North Carolina, but over the next 10 games Stokes only made 23.5% of his three point attempts. It appears he may be busting out of the slump as he's average 15 points in the Wildcats last four contests. (Joel Jellison, The Mercury)

Maybe the turn around started after being benched for the Baylor game? Bruce Weber clearly sent a message that he needed more from the freshman point guard, and it appears Stokes responded, scoring 20 point coming off the bench against Baylor, and then smothering Jawun Evans, Oklahoma State's star freshman guard.

Up next for Kamau Stokes and the Wildcats is a trip to Morgantown to take on West Virginia tonight. Hopefully, the 'Cats can break through and get that elusive Big 12 road victory. (Kellis Robinett, KC Star)

Following tonight's game against the Mountaineers, the Wildcats will come back to the friendly confines of the Doom to face Mississippi in the Big 12/SEC Showdown. This weird scheduling quirk doesn't seem to sit to well with most of the Big 12 coaches. (Kellis Robinett, KC Star)
