Congratulations to Bruce Weber for his 400th career win!
Back to on the court business...K-State comes out triumphant in a somewhat messy game, at least in the first half. A win is a win, right?
Although the final score was 74-55 in K-State’s favor, the game wasn’t always completely one-sided. Dean Wade, the sophomore forward, lead the team at halftime with 9 points, almost a quarter of all the points scored by K-State at halftime. To say the Wildcats were off to a slow start would be an understatement, both teams had trouble scoring well into over two minutes into the game.
Back out on the court after halftime, K-State (and mainly Dean Wade) pulled their offense together and started shooting from the perimeter with ease. The stats didn’t tell much of the early struggle the Wildcats faced in the first half, but they did show Weber’s ability to get this team refocused. The team was 11 of 20 for 3’s and Wade totaled 19 points with 9 rebounds for the evening. At least Wade’s performance was exciting since the first half didn’t exactly rev up the crowd.
Prairie View A&M is truly awful. It's 5-5 at the first media timeout.— Tim Fitzgerald (@LifeofFitz) December 7, 2016
At the end of the day we just need to remember...
With (technically) a road game against Washington State coming up at Sprint Center in Kansas City on December 10th, K-State will need to loosen up earlier than the second half. Let’s get Kansas City packed with more purple than usual and cheer on the Wildcats! See you there!
