In news which just missed yesterday’s Slate, Kansas State Wildcats is down another guard. Bruce Weber announced yesterday morning that sophomore Brian Patrick will be transferring to finish his career elsewhere.
This announcement, which is about as surprising as waking up in the middle of the night to discover it’s dark outside, obviously opens a spot for one of the approximately zillion transfers to whom K-State has been linked of late. Tim Bisel at the Capital-Journal has the story.
The Spring Game is tomorrow, and that means our local correspondents are stepping up their football coverage. At the Eagle, Kellis Robinett reports on Duke Shelley’s new status as leader of the Wildcat secondary, as does Corbin McGuire in today’s Sports Extra.
Meanwhile, Bisel highlights six things to watch at tomorrow’s scrimmage. Of interest in that article: the players don’t think the Spring Game carries nearly as much weight as the practices leading up to it.
On the other hand, it was last spring when we first saw what a walk-on wide receiver was capable of. Will someone make a statement tomorrow like Dalton Schoen did last April?
Track and Field
Dan Olsen of the New Westminster (B.C.) Record reports on his hometown girl Nina Schultz and her silver medal at the Commonwealth Games.
At 8:00am this morning, the Big 12 Women’s Golf Championship gets underway at the Dallas Athletic Club. K-State tees off at 10:00am, paired with TCU and Kansas. Connie Jaffrey, ranked #59 in the latest GolfStat rankings, leads the way for the Wildcats, joined by Reid Isaac, Niamh McSherry, Ella Adams, and Darby Deans.
We’re Still Suspicious
K-State (16-21, 2-10 Big 12) travels to Morgantown to take on the West Virginia Mountaineers (17-17, 2-7 Big 12) in a three-game weekend set. If the BatCats can’t take a game or two here, there’s little hope for any sort of recovery.
