Yesterday, K-State played dead even with the Connecticut Huskies for three quarters. Let that sink in.

While you’re pondering that, here’s a ton of information in the wake of yesterday’s big game.

Also in women’s basketball news, ESPNW’s Dan Olson reports on the commitment of 6’ shooting guard Christianna Carr to K-State. Carr, a junior at Manhattan, is ranked #23 on ESPNW’s Super 60 for 2018. Her commitment comes as little surprise, since her father Chris is director of student-athlete development for the K-State women. Still, it’s a huge get for Jeff Mittie.

Finally, a football item: Kellis Robinett on how the Wildcats became such a run-happy unit. Spoiler: it involves beef. Over half a ton of it.
