Congratulations to the Baylor Bears for dominating the previously unbeaten Gonzaga Bulldogs to become only the second Big 12 team to win a national basketball title since the league was formed.
In K-State Land, nothing quite so exciting is happening, though the football and men’s basketball programs have added some prospects for next season via the transfer portal to try to build excitement for the Wildcats’ future.
Drew Schneider reported on the newest official member of Bruce Weber’s roster, Arkansas-Little Rock guard Markquis Nowel. Meanwhile, Coach Klieman secured the services of former Nebraska wideout Kade Warner, whose father is NFL Hall of Fame quarterback Kurt Warner. So, be looking for football royalty at Bill Snyder Family Stadium this fall.
The men’s golf team got off to an outstanding start at the Missouri Tiger Invitational yesterday, carding a cumulative 18-under par 558 to lead the event after the opening two rounds. Junior Will Hopkins, who played off for the final spot in the Wildcat starting lineup for the event, is making the most of the opportunity, shooting an 8-under 64—tied for the third-lowest single round score in school history—to lead the individual scoring a -11 overall. The final round teed off at 8 a.m., with host Missouri two shots back of the Cats.
After wining two of three against No. 3 Texas Tech at the end of last week, K-State will try to keep the momentum going in a two-game midweek series against Arkansas-Pine Bluff. UAPB is 2-17 on the season, with neither of its wins coming against non-conference opponents.
As Jon reported yesterday, K-State Tennis claimed a 4-3 win over #44 Kansas Saturday, the program’s first win over the Jayhawks since 2014. Sports Extra recounts the team’s celebration, which featured a whipped-cream pie in Coach Jordan Smith’s face.
Happy Tuesday, everyone.
