Track dominates field at UCLA

The Late Slate tries to catch up. Or something.

I guess we'll be seeing more of Lon Kruger, at least today.

The NCAA Men's Tournament is down to the Final Four. Oklahoma will take the court first, trying to knock of Villanova for a spot in the final. Next, the ACC will hold court as North Carolina and Syracuse play each other in a contest that should rightly end with both teams losing. Jon Morse has all the details in the How to Watch post.

Jon also continues his stellar recap of the postseason (the CBI and the WNIT this time) in The National.

Last but certainly not least, don't forget to vote for Kansas State's Purple and Black team to get the team into The Basketball Tournament!

A weather-rescheduling has Kansas State in a double header against Texas Tech today in Lubbock. The first game is already under way, and the second is scheduled for 5 PM.

Both teams are coming off midweek splits, with the BatCats beating Omaha but losing to Oral Roberts in extra innings. Texas Tech went 1-1 against UNLV early in the week.

You can follow the action live at News Radio KMAN (1350 AM/93.3 FM) or k-statesports.com.

The women's golf team is currently in 11th place at the SMU/DAC Invitational in Mesquite, Texas. The team is 35 shots over par for a combined score of 611 over two rounds, but only five shots back of Baylor, currently in sixth place. A good third round might be sufficient to secure a high finish.

Junior Madison Talley is low Wildcat so far. She is 3 shots over par at 137 after 36 holes, good for a three-way tie for 12th place, and just one stroke off a top-10 finish.

The tennis team was blanked by #13 Texas Tech 4-0 at the Lubbock Country Club, and the matches were not even as close as the scorelines would suggest. Coach Danielle Steinberg noted the team is getting better at playing matches strategically, but relative youth has contributed to a lack of execution.

The Wildcats will stay in Texas to take on #35 TCU tomorrow at 1 PM.

Kansas State's track athletes are out to prove a point in a packed field at the UCLA Legends Invitational. On the first day, the team notched three first-place finishes, including a 1-2-3 finish in a race and a new school record.

Tyler Merkeley took first place in the men's hammer throw event, setting a new school record of 62.31m beating the 61.94 mark set by teammate Brady Grunder earlier this season at the UTSA Invitational.

The Wildcats were 1-2-3 in the men's 1500m event, with Lukas Koch taking first, and teammates Kain Ellis and Kurt Loevenstein following right behind.

On the women's side, Sonia Gaskin took first in the 800m race, her third first place finish this season across various events.
