There’s not much to cover today, which is odd given that it’s a Friday leading into a packed weekend. But mostly, today is all “mark your calendar” material, so we’ll be brief.

The biggest event of the weekend is, of course, Kansas State‘s visit to West Virginia tomorrow. But there are no new stories surrounding men’s basketball today which KSUEMAW! didn’t get to in yesterday’s late Slate, so we soldier on.

Women’s Basketball

Chrissy Carr, who had been in a pronounced slump since starting the season at nearly a 20 point-per-game clip, bounced back on Wednesday with a 20-point night against Kansas. In the Mercury, Greg Woods explains how that happened.

Like the men, the women will be in action on the road tomorrow. K-State visits TCU at 1:00pm. That game will be on FOX Southwest.

Track and Field

K-State will be among the heavies competing in the Razorback Invitational in Fayetteville this weekend, which is just getting underway as we publish. In addition to the Wildcats, Arkansas welcomes Auburn, Florida, Georgia, Kent State, LSU, Missouri, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Oregon, Purdue, Stanford, and Texas. That, my friends, is a lineup, and it should be one heck of a meet.

Tennis

At 1:00pm today, the K-State tennis team will be in Wichita to take on the Shockers; they’ll return home Sunday to face Missouri at noon.
