Welcome to the last day of June everyone.
Since basketball is dominating the headlines, and since our only extra content here yesterday was football, we'll go ahead and lead off with the money-maker. BracketCat dropped his next roster countdown update, with a Cat that may or may not still be one the team: Blake Hickey. Over at ESPN, Brandon Chatmon takes a look at how Big 12 defenses stack up once they are in the Red Zone, and it looks like bend-but-don't-break is only average. Chatmon also takes a look at the Big 12 in week 3 of 2016, and predicts a decent victory for the Cats over Florida Atlantic.
On Tuesday, Bruce Weber held a press conference before the start of an open practice. Since the basketball team will be playing in Eurpoe in August, they've been allowed to have some actual team-organized practices this summer. And yesterday, the writers on the K-State beat started to empty their notebooks.
From the Wichita Eagle, Kellis Robinett first gives us a look at incoming freshman Cartier Diarra. Apparently Diarra is quite the dancer, and at one time he seriously considered becoming a professional dancer. A bit later, Robinett posted some more notes from the event, and Weber is very optimistic about the newcomers and development of the current roster. At the Manhattan Mercury, Joel Jellison talks overall on the Wildcats preparations for the Europe trip.
