Not a whole lot going on yesterday at BotC world headquarters, but later on today around 11 a.m. Luke Thompson will be dropping the Bring on the PodCats with SB Nation’s own bracketologist Chris Dobbertean.
We’ll start with the MittieCats who seem to be on the upswing at just the right time. Last night, they knocked off the 16th ranked Sooners, 79-71, giving them their best win since beating West Virginia back in January. (Shelton Burch, The Collegian)
Karyla Middlebrook, the Alabama transfer, led the charge with 19 points and 7 rebounds; Bre Lewis had 18 and 8. Kindred Wesemann tossed in another 13. All that helped counter a 21-11 double-double by Sooner Vionese Pierre-Louis.
The win gives the Wildcats 20 victories on the season, something that hasn’t been accomplished by them since the 2011-12 season, and should provide a nice seed boost come tournament time. OU had been included in the Top 16 seeds in the women’s preview bracket released earlier this week. (Wire Reports, The Oklahoman)
Bramlage Coliseum has been less Octagon of Doom, and more Octagon of Gloom for the Wildcats this season, as the Wildcats have as many Big 12 wins at home as they do on the road this year. Coach Weber is hoping Kansas State will bring the “road anxiety, that road nervousness” back home to try and spark the Cats out of the gate. (Ken Corbitt, Capital Journal)
It happened again. Following last season’s beat down of all things Texas, the Kansas State football program/athletic department released an updated version of the “Texas State Champs” shirt, and I must say they are a thing of beauty. (Morgan Moriarty, SBNation)
Finally, Bill Snyder wrote a heartwarming message to everyone at Kansas State, but more specifically to a young lady who stopped him outside the Alumni Center. (Bill Snyder, The Collegian)
