Yesterday, Jon and Luke took a stab at predicting the next round of bowl games. There is also a cool new widget which lets you play along.

Zone defense appears to be the bane of Kansas State's offense, as both Texas A&M and Colorado State held the Wildcats to 68 and 61 points respectively by playing mostly zone. With the 'Cats shooting only 29.3 percent from three don't expect opponents to move away from the zone. (Kellis Robinett, Wichita Eagle)

Along with the need to shoot better from three, the Wildcats must do a better job at running their offensive sets. Too often the past few games the Wildcat offense has stagnated. In order to be competitive in league play Kansas State needs to get back to being the team who gets out in transition, and works the ball around the offense to find the best shot.

The Kansas State Women's Basketball team improved to 10-1 on the season by thrashing Western Illinois 84-45. The key to the game was the 30-4 run in the second quarter to put the Wildcats up by 33 at half. Kansas State was led by Breanna Lewis who scored 30 points in only three quarters of action.

Cody Whitehair never dreamed of finishing his season season as the MVP of Kansas State's offense. But here we are at the end of the year, and Whitehair was selected as co-MVP of the offense. (Kellis Robinett, KC Star)

For all you stat heads out there, the Big 12 blog on ESPN.com reviewed the Big 12's most efficient offenses and came up with some very interesting stats. Especially if you are a Kansas State fan. The stat I found most interesting? The red zone touchdown percentage in which Kansas State led the Big 12 by scoring a touchdown 78.8 percent of the time when they made it to the red zone.
