All hoops, all the time.

Luke Thompson and BracketCat talked to Matt Wilson of Bears Illustrated about Baylor basketball, among other things, in this week's Bring on the Podcast.

Kansas State is about to play a stretch of games almost unprecedented in program history: five consecutive games against teams in the Top 25. But the team is taking this one game at a time, because of course they are. (Kellis Robinett, Kansas City Star)

If this prospect seems less daunting than it did a few weeks ago, a three-game winning streak is probably the reason. The recent wins are probably thanks to Marcus Foster, and against Texas Tech, he was steady, productive and unselfish. (Jeffrey Flanagan, FoxSports Kansas City)

The women's team was not able to sustain the momentum from their win over Kansas. The Wildcats lost a third straight road game, dropping 69-47 to Oklahoma State. Breanna Lewis managed a double-double (15 points, 10 rebounds) even in defeat, although offensive struggles in the first half doomed the team down the stretch.

Kansas State takes on Iowa State in Bramlage tomorrow. The Cyclones are 0-4 on the road, so this is a good time for the team to right the ship. This is the annual "Pack the House" game, and tickets are only $1.

Freshman kicker Matthew McCrane was named to the Freshmen All-America team by the Football Writers Association of America. His 94.7% conversion rate leads the FBS. He was perfect on 18 of 19 attempts, including all field goals from beyond the 30.

And of course there was this, which everyone should watch as much as humanly possible.

The Danielle Steinberg era at Kansas State begins this weekend. The tennis team, currently No. 64, will open the season against UNI. Warmer temperatures mean the matches will be played outdoors at Mike Goss Tennis Stadium.

Sunflower State pride is on the line as Kansas State hosts Kansas and Wichita State for the KSU-KU-WSU Triangular at Ahearn Field House this weekend. The Wildcats have dominated this meet in the past, winning 15 times out of 17. Kansas State efforts will be led by the women's team, currently ranked No. 12 in the country.
