While the Kansas State men may be taking a short break this week, the Wildcat women are still in action in Big 12 play, taking on the TCU Horned Frogs tonight at 7pm in Bramlage Coliseum to wrap up the first half of conference action. Lizards (yes, the TCU “frog” is actually the Texas horned lizard) slow down in the cold, so hopefully the arctic chill currently descended upon Manhattan (and the rest of the Great Plains/Midwest) affects the TCU roundballers the same way; the Wildcats could sure use the help to bounce back from their dismal performance last weekend (Toscano, Mercury).
It’s not all bad news right now for the Wildcat men. The recruiting services updated their rankings earlier in the week, and K-State signee Montavious Murphy moved into the Rivals 150 (at 138, giving K-State two in the top 150 for 2019) after continuing to make his presence felt in the Houston, TX area as he completes his senior season (Gates, GoPowercat (free)). Speaking of Rivals, Matt Hall at K-State Online (free) broke down the Big 12 title contenders as we near the half-way point, and still has KU winning the league, but with the Beakers sharing the title with K-State.
K-State Athletics yesterday announced the 2019 home broadcast schedule for the BatCats. The Wildcats, under first-year head coach Pete Hughes, will have all 29 home games available in some format, with 20 games on ESPN3 and the other nine via K-StateHD.TV. Four of the K-StateHD.TV games will be carried by FOX College Sports, and three more of those broadcast will also be available via Facebook Live. Select away games will also be broadcast based on the home team’s media deal (including FOX Sports affiliates, Big Ten Network and institutional online platforms).
Today’s K-State Sports Extra featured new K-State wide receivers coach Jason Ray, and how he continues to lean on some advice he got early on in his coaching career: be yourself.
Stay safe and warm out there Wildcats!
