Slate: Basketball Wins Big

Both the men and women won big last night against ranked opponents. Plus football and track and field notes.

NCAA Basketball: Kansas State at Oklahoma Rob Ferguson-USA TODAY Sports


Last night the Wildcats knocked off the 20th ranked Sooners 74-61. Luke Sobba brought gave us the recap.

Luke then doubled down recapping an even more impressive win, with the K-State women knocking off 11th ranked Texas 87-69.

Earlier today Luke Thompson (a.k.a. other Luke) gave us this week’s edition of Tournament Thursday.

Track and Field

Our status as a Track and Field school may take a hit soon. Nina Schultz, an All-America and runner-up in the pentathlon at the 2018 NCAA Indoor Championships has transferred to the University of Georgia. She will redshirt during the 2019 season and return in 2020.


Alex Delton will transfer to TCU and Kansas State will NOT block that transfer. Which means Delton will be eligible to play for the Horned Frogs this fall. (Kellis Robinett, Wichita Eagle)

It was a short lived run for Wildcat defensive coordinator Ted Monachino. Monachino is leaving Kansas State to join the Chicago Bears as an assistant to new DC Chuck Pagano. (Patrick Finley, Chicago Sun-Times)

We now know what Sean Snyder’s role will be with Kansas State. Snyder will move into the AD’s office and serve as the Director of Football Operations. The two main areas of focus for the position are scheduling and arranging travel for the team. (Staff Reports, Manhattan Mercury)
