The Wildcats picked up a much-needed win on Wednesday night over Oklahoma State, ending a 3-game skid that felt more like 30, and keeping the Cats ever-so-slim tournament hopes alive.
Last time against TCU, the WeberCats held a decent led until the last couple minutes of the game, when they stopped scoring and TCU didn’t, allowing the Horned Frogs to escape Manhattan with a win.
We’ll keep this simple. Don’t do that. Don’t stop scoring, that’s a terrible idea. Seriously. That was bad, and it felt bad, and it should not be done again. Just finish it this time.
Tonight’s game from Schollmaier Arena in Ft. Worth tips at 7:05pm CST and can be seen on ESPNU with Chuckie Kempf (play-by-play) and Bryndon Manzer (analyst) on the call. The game should also be available streaming via WatchESPN, if you already have the correct TV subscription.
If you don’t get ESPNU, or can’t access the stream, you can listen to Wyatt Thompson (play-by-play) and Stan Weber (analyst) call the game on much of the K-State Sports Radio Network, and also available on XM channel 384 and online on the The Varsity Network app and at K-StateSports.com.
