Slate: Wildcats Fall Just Short Again

But there are some non-negative things happening too.

We’ll start with happy things this morning before jumping into to last night’s action.

Baseball

Today’s Sports Extra is a Q&A feature with former Wildcat great Craig Wilson, who will be inducted into the Kansas Sports Hall of Fame a month from now. Wilson held several K-State baseball records when he graduated in 1992, including becoming the program’s first consensus All-American and conference player of the year. He even was honored with a spot on the 1992 Olympics Team USA baseball team.

Basketball

Also happening a month from now, K-State Athletics will be hosting their third annual National Girls and Women in Sports Day Event with a pregame clinic prior to the K-State vs Baylor contest on February 8th.

Okay, on to men’s basketball...

Our own Luke Sobba stayed up late after his drive home from the game to bring you a recap of last night’s 59-57 loss to TCU. It was certainly not a fatal blow, and the Wildcats are still showing signs of improvement, but it’s still another slow start to the conference slate.

Our old pal Greg also reports on why Bruce Weber and his team are staying positive, even after a close loss (I mean, what else would you expect).

In a free read from GoPowercat, D. Scott Fritchen writes about K-State freshmen DaJuan Gordon and Montavious Murphy, who are both finding their place a K-State.
