K-State Slate: 2.19.15 - Basketball struggles continue

It turns out we don't own the state of Texas at all.

Sometimes a few words tell the whole story, so in lieu of all the game recaps you probably don't want to read anyway, here's Curtis Kitchen on Kansas State's basketball season: Dead and Bloated.

In the interest of full coverage, however, you should also definitely read this piece from Sean Keeler (FoxSports Kansas City).

Did the women fare better, you ask? Unfortunately, no. Despite a good showing from Haley Texada and Breanna Lewis, the Wildcats lost to No. 25 Texas 76-58. The Longhorns' effort was bolstered by hot shooting beyond the arc in the first half. Kansas State also turned the ball over 19 times in a game where the team was outrebounded 36-25.

The team has now lost two games in a row and will look to end the slide against Oklahoma in Bramlage on Saturday.

The baseball team is headed west for the Big 12/Pac-12 Showdown. The BatCats will take on Utah (February 19) and Oregon State (February 20) in the first two games. The games will be played at Surprise Stadium, where the Royals have spring training. Nate Griep and Levi MaVorhis get the nod for those games respectively.

The equestrian team is back home at Timbercreek Stables for the first time since November 8, and looking to end a troubling losing streak. That might be a tall task against No. 2 TCU this Friday. The Wildcats lost to TCU in their last meeting 13-5 in Fort Worth but Kansas State is undefeated at home.

The Big 12 has announced its concussion treatment and management policy. Under the plan, each Big 12 member institution will be required to submit an updated concussion management plan annually to the Conference office, which will establish a plan to track potentially unsafe plays. Here's an interview with Bob Bowlsby on the topic.
