It was a relatively busy Hump Day at BOTC. Jon started us off with your ultimate guide to the college basketball postseason. Then Gracey came in like a wrecking ball and brought us reasons why it might be time to bring back Brad Underwood.
There was a basketball game in Bramlage last night, and the Wildcats managed to do something only two other teams in K-State history have, shoot better than 70% in a half. We have your recaps from everywhere:
- BOTC: K-State 79, TCU 54
- K-State SID
- Corbitt, Capital Journal
- Robinett, KC Star/Wichita Eagle
- Avery Osen, K-State Collegian
- Jamie Plunkett, Frogs O' War
Tim Everson at the Collegian posits that TCU is good for what ails you. At least in basketball.
The Women's All-Big 12 teams are out, and the Wildcats have two on the lists. Breanna Lewis was named to the First Team, and Kindred Wesemann to the Second Team. Lewis was also named to the Big 12 All-Defensive Team.
The dominating season continues for Akela Jones as she picked up her third National Athlete of the Week honor on Tuesday. Jones earned the honor after her dominating performance at the Big 12 championships last week where she won three meet titles, sets a couple records, and earned high scorer of the meet honors.
On Tuesday, the Big 12 released the lists for those honored with the Dr. Gerald Lage Academic Achievement Award, the conference's highest academic honor. Seven Wildcats were named: Courtney Faucett (Sr.; rowing; industrial engineering), Cameron Morgan (Jr.; football; finance), Scotland Preston (Sr.; golf; public relations and economics), Rachel Proteau, (Sr.; track & field; biochemistry), Matt Seiwert (So.; football; agribusiness), Kelly Thomson, (R-Jr.; women’s basketball; nutritional sciences) and Danielle Winters (Sr.; track & field; communication studies). Congrats to all these student-athletes for this honor.
