Speaking of winning, Kansas State swept Lipscomb 3-0 (28-26, 25-15, 26-24) in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament last night in Manhattan. Our own Greg Woods has the full story on the Wildcats’ sweep.
Blocking was the word of the day for the VolleyCats. Behind in the first set, the team clawed its way back with a 6-1 run fueled by back-to-back blocks. K-State had six team blocks in the set, including four for senior Katie Reininger.
The Wildcats dominated the second set, with Brooke Sassin notching five kills on just eight swings without an error. The team also recorded four more blocks in the set and held the opponent to just .028 attacking percentage.
In the final set, the team struggled to put Lipscomb away, and the teams were tied at ten different points in the set. However, a block from Katie Brand sealed the deal for Kansas State.
Next up, the Wildcats will take on Ohio State tonight in the round of 32 at Bramlage Coliseum. First serve is set for 7 PM CST and will be available on ESPN3.
Kansas State will face its first real road test today, as the Wildcats take on the St. Louis Billikens. The game is a bit of a homecoming for Xavier Sneed and D.J. Johnson who are both from St. Louis.
Tip off is scheduled for 7 PM CST and the game will be broadcast on FS Kansas City.
The big game is on the women’s side though. The Wildcats will take on powerhouse UConn, only the four-time defending national champion. The game in Bramlage Coliseum tomorrow (Sunday December 11) at 1 PM CST.
This is the largest expected crowd for a women’s basketball game since the 2006 WNIT finals. Kansas State is currently 7-0, a hot start matched by only six other squads in school history.
Happy purple gameday, all! Let’s do this!!
