NCAA Womens Basketball: NCAA Tournament-First Round-George Washington vs Kansas State Jeff Blake-USA TODAY Sports

Previously

Yesterday at Bring on the Cats, Luke Thompson and Derek Smith sat down with Ian Boyd to discuss the upcoming game against Texas.

A little later on this morning, Derek has a great story on why “We Own Texas”, so be sure and be on the lookout for that dropping at about 10am.

Women’s Basketball

Oh, did you notice the headline for today? Yes, Jeff Mittie and his staff are set to reel in the #18 class in the nation according to ESPN Hoopgurlz 2017 rankings. Last year, Mittie made headlines by signing Eternati Willock, the #1 recruit from Canada and a top-60 player. But Mittie decided to do better this year, and has picked up the #58 (Rachel Ranke) and #98 (Cymone Goodrich) overall players in the 2017 class, and the third is a 6’4” post (Myisha Lakes) who is Top 15 in her position. K-State is one of two Big 12 teams in the Top 20, joining Baylor who is currently sitting at #5 overall.

Also, one Wildcat was the recipient of some very special jewelry, as Kindred Wesemann was surprised by her now-fiance Aaron during the K-State photo shoot session. Kellis Robinett via the Eagle has more on the story. Congrats Kindred!

Football

The K-State O-line was singled out as the #3 offensive line in the nation according the Pro Football Focus’s ratings (Robinett, Eagle). The Cat line was singled out for its “understanding of technique and angles” in the running game, playing well together, and even grades highly in the passing game. Dalton Risner even comes in as the fourth-highest-graded tackle based on their film study. Speaking of Dalton Risner, Ken Corbitt at the Capital-Journal takes us through a good day in the life of Mr. Risner.

Joel Jellison at the Manhattan Mercury reports on the Cats riding an up and down year so far in 2016. And Chris Lilly at WIBW in Topeka reports that the Wildcats are just looking for consistency.

Soccer

The K-State Women’s Soccer team wraps up its first official season of competition tonight in Normal, Ill. as the Wildcats take on the Illinois State Redbirds. The Redbirds come in to tonight’s match sporting a 9-5-2 (3-0-1 MVC) record, and will face a Cat squad that has failed to score a goal in the last three games. The game will be broadcast on ESPN3, and audio will also be available on 101.5 KROCK in the Manhattan area and online for free at www.kstatesports.com.

Women’s Golf

K-State junior Connie Jaffrey took home the Greenville Regional Preview individual title on Tuesday, carding a 1-over par 73 during Tuesday’s final round, as she led the Kansas State women’s golf team to a third-place finish at Brook Valley Country Club in Greenville, NC.
