Not much to say this morning, so let’s get it said and be on about the day.

K-State post phenoms Peyton Williams and Ayoka Lee swept the Big 12 weekly awards, after both averaged a double-double for the week. This was the first time since 2001-02—when Nicole Ohlde and Kendra Wecker pulled off the feat—that two Wildcats have held both the Player of the Week and Freshman of the Week honors simultaneously. Only two players in the entire conference average a double-double for the season: Williams and Lee. Lee’s honor is a record-setting 10th for the season, passing Oklahoma’s Courtney Paris, who had nine 2005-06.

Williams and Lee will start building this week’s resume Wednesday evening, as Coach Mittie tries to solve the curse against his former employer, the TCU Horned Frogs.

The baseball boys evened their season record at 2-2 with a 9-2 beatdown of the University of Texas-Rio Grande Valley last night. The Wildcats led 5-0 after three innings, and starter Casey Ford struck out seven and yielded only one run over 5 13 frames. K-State will remain in Texas to play the Kleberg Bank College Classic in Corpus Christi. The four-team tournament will match the Cats against Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, Utah and Missouri.

Though nobody local has previewed the contest yet, down in Lubbock they are already looking forward to tomorrow’s men’s hoops match-up, in which the Red Raiders hope to get back into the win column at our Wildcats’ expense.
