With National Signing Day just nine days out, you'd think there'd be more news on this Monday morning. Well, the joke's on you, citizen. Even with one major event yesterday, the inbox is cold and dry.
On the other hand, basketball is fun again. For now.
Yesterday in Lubbock, the Wildcats got back to .500 on the conference season and improved to 14-5 (4-4) with a 65-53 win over Texas Tech (10-9, 1-7). It's their fourth straight win after starting 0-4, and their first four-game conference winning streak since 2011-12. The Cats had to hold off a late Red Raider surge, giving up half of a 24-point lead down the stretch. Megan Deines led the charge with 20 points, while Bre Lewis had another double-double on the nose with 10 points and 10 boards. Three Red Raiders were in double figures, but the rest of the team only scored 12 points.
Tech also has an official recap.
The Washington Post has a longform by Anne Hull Maira Salim, president of the Muslim Student Association at Wichita State. It's a pretty interesting window into what it's like for a young Muslim woman in Kansas, and worth a look.
