Today’s Slate will be short and not-so-sweet...
Kansas State lost to Tennessee 70-58 in Knoxville yesterday. Jon Morse speaks for all of us in this recap: CLANK.
Here are the rest of the game recaps in no particular order:
- Tennessee too much for K-State (Kellis Robinett, Wichita Eagle)
- Iwundu: we should be disgusted with ourselves (Ken Corbitt, Topeka Capital-Journal)
- K-State loses to Vols (Joel Jellison, Manhattan Mercury)
- Vols avoid let-down, top K-State (The Tennesseean)
Whatever else Bruce Weber needs to do, he absolutely must work on his press conference skills. After the loss, he had this to say:
I was kind of hoping they’d have a letdown a little bit after the two wins. Obviously they didn’t. They took it to us right from the start.
Um, what? Who says things like this? What the heck is going on here?
Kansas State is still ranked (25/RV) and is likely to hold on to that spot after a comprehensive 74-69 win over Oklahoma State. The Wildcats are now 16-6 and 6-4 in the Big 12.
Kindred Wesemann had herself a day. Scoring a career-high 34 points off 10-of-18 shooting including four shots from beyond the arc. She was also a perfect 10-for-10 from the free throw line. Wesemann’s 34 points were the most for Kansas State since Breanna Lewis’ 30 in 2015, and her 15 points in the third quarter is a new school record.
Freshman Eternati Willock was the other key contributor. She had 10 points and nine rebounds in her first Big 12 start.
