Yesterday, we brought the #content with a vengeance. TB was first, dropping some satire on the fifth Masters win by the son of a K-State Alum. Drew visited in the late afternoon with a breakdown of 2020 Tight End/H-Back recruit Christian Moore. In the wee hours of this morning, our first recap of the final “Game of Thrones” season hit the page. A lofty standard has been set for the next twenty-four hours.
The BatCats travel north of the border for a rematch against the Cornhuskers tonight. Nebraska beat K-State 7-0 on April 2. The Cats will try to return the favor at Haymarket Park in Lincoln. First pitch is at 6:30. The game is on the radio (KMAN 93.3 FM, 1350 AM) and through audio streaming at the ironic address kstatesports.com/watch. No television coverage, however.
K-State just won a road series over No. 14 Texas and credits a “play to win” mentality for their recent surge. Freshman left-hander Jordan Wicks helped seal the series victory over the Longhorns with a complete-game five-hit shutout and was named Big 12 Newcomer of the Week for his performance.
Barry Brown will travel to Virginia to play in the Portsmouth Invitational Wednesday through Saturday of this week. Sixty-four invited college seniors will play 12 games over the three days, trying to impress approximately 200 NBA representatives. Brown is one of eight Big 12 players selected to the field.
In less welcome news, long-time Bruce Weber assistant Chester Frazier is reportedly leaving Manhattan to accept an assistant coach position under Mike Young at Virginia Tech.
The women’s golf squad battled windy conditions in the second round of the Big 12 tournament Monday and did not make up any ground on the field. The Cats are last among the nine participants, at +55. Iowa state is 8th at +46, nine strokes clear of K-State. Texas leads the tournament at +8, 22 strokes better than second-place Baylor. Reid Isaac leads the individual scoring for K-State, carding rounds of 76 and 81 for a cumulative score of 13 over par. She is in 27th place win one round to play.
