Women’s Basketball

We’ll lead off with the team with actually NCAA Tournament hopes, as the MittieCat’s dropped their Senior Night game against Texas 69-61. Karyla Middlebrook and Breanna Lewis did everything they could to keep the Wildcats in the game, but they could never overcome the 27-19 halftime hole. (AP via CBS DFW)

The lack of shooting in the game killed the ‘Cats as they made only 29% of their shots, and only 20% in the first half. (Staff Reports, KC Star)

As he did at Illinois, Bruce Weber is failing to make the cut as Kansas State’s head coach. (Jeff Gordon, St. Louis Post-Dispatch)

Finally, Tim Fitzgerald joined Cody Tapp for Sports Night on 810 radio, and spoke some hard truths about the state of men’s basketball at Kansas State. (Cody Tapp, WHB 810)
