Curtis Kitchen opines on the seeming inconsistency between Bruce Weber's coaching resume and fan perception: The Great Disconnect.
Kansas State's road trip continues with a visit to No. 20 Baylor in Waco, with tipoff scheduled for noon today. A win will mean a season sweep of Baylor and a record above .500.
Here's your official preview from TheBigE: Kansas State vs. No. 20 Baylor.
Jon has you covered with the all-important How to Watch post. Even more importantly, you can watch this game with your friends in person! It's an Official Watch Party!
TB will, barring disaster, be welcoming you at The Granfalloon, located at 608 Ward Parkway in the Country Club Plaza. This is our first and only official basketball watch part of the season, so if you can make it, please do. You can hang with TB, enjoy the game, good eats, drinks, and the company of your fellow Wildcat faithful. Well, maybe not the game. But you can enjoy the rest!
While this team has not given us much to celebrate, it may be worth noting that some players are having a pretty good run. Nino Williams, for one, is having a great senior season (Ken Corbitt, Topeka Capital-Journal). Or maybe it will be journeyman guard Brian Rohleder who makes the difference against Baylor (Kellis Robinett, Wichita Eagle). Either way, the team will need a much needed spark to pick up this road win.
Meanwhile, the women are back home in Bramlage, hosting Oklahoma in the annual Play 4 Kay game. Tipoff is scheduled for 7 PM tonight. The Wildcats are looking to avenge an upset loss to the Sooners just two weeks ago (Grant Flanders, K-State Collegian), and a win will mean the team has won 14 home games for the first time since the 2005-2006 season.
The men's golf team shot its lowest round of the season (1-under-par 287) in the first day of play at the Desert Intercollegiate. Kansas State is in fourth place, with No. 2 Oregon leading the back at 7-under.
Wildcats Seth Smith, Matt Green, and Trent Evans are all tied for 14th place at 1-under for the first day.
The women's golf team will open its spring season tomorrow in Peoria, Arizona at the Westbrook Invitational. Last year, the Wildcats tied for ninth place at the same event.
The tennis team's weekend got off to a rough start, with a 6-1 loss to UNLV. Although Palma Juhasz won her singles match and ran her winning streak to four matches, the team could not sustain the success over the entire contest. Head coach Danielle Steinberg blamed the loss on a flat start and up-and-down intensity over the rest of the singles matches.
Kansas State athletes got a great tune up for the Big 12 Indoor Championships at the K-State Open, setting several personal-best or season-best marks in the process. The team recorded 12 first-place finishes in their final home event of the season.
