The winning streak is over. The Wildcats lost their first game of the season, losing a close, messy contest to Wichita State, 51-48. Aisha Woods and Breanna Lewis were both in the double digits, but the team also committed ten turnovers. This is Kansas State's second consecutive loss to the Shockers, and the first time they've dropped two in a row to Wichita State since 1993. (K-State SID)

Thirty eight student-athletes will graduate from Kansas State this month.
