Cats Fall Short of Upset

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Yesterday at Bring on the Cats, we saw the two recaps from Tuesday night's Men's basketball game in Ft. Worth. First, JeffP's Visual Box score, and second KSUEMAW!'s game recap K-State 63, TCU 49.

The Wildcat women get the starting nod today, as they were the only K-State squad in action yesterday. The lady round-ballers went down to Austin to take on the #8/7 Texas Longhorns and made some noise before finally falling 51-58. The Cats held a 27-18 halftime lead, and led by as many as 14, but a 40 point second half by UT, along with K-State only shooting 35% and giving up 13 turnovers, allowed the Longhorns to close the gap and pull out the victory (AP, via Cap-Journal). The loss moves the Cats to 16-9 (6-8) on the season. The Cats return to Bramlage on Sunday afternoon to face the Red Raiders of Texas Tech, in a game that the Cats must win if they want to stay in the NCAA tournament picture.

Over at the Topeka Capital-Journal, Ken Corbitt notes that the Wildcats checked off several items on the long list of concerns from the win against TCU.

As he's been doing so far this football off-season, Jake Trotter as ESPN dropped his pre-spring position rankings for Big 12 defensive backs. As with most groups, K-State ranks in the bottom half of the conference again, landing at #7 even with the return of Dante Barnett and the emergence of Duke Shelley.
