There is no escape from the giant portal of suck that is K-State basketball and last night proved no exception as the K-State women, who are still winless in conference play through six games, fell to Iowa State in a very winnable game that ended with one of the worst offensive fourth quarters that I’ve seen two teams play in quite some time.
The 62-60 loss dropped K-State to 5-8 this season and 0-6 in conference play. Ayoka Lee led the way with a 19-point, 12-rebound double-double followed by 14 points for Chrissy Carr and 11 for Sydney Goodson. They’ll play Oklahoma on Sunday at 1 p.m. on ESPN+.
