K-State rs-freshman forward Ayoka Lee continues her charge to re-write the record books, adding her 11th overall Big 12 Freshman of the Week honor, and 6th straight. Yeah, that’s right, Lee has commanded the award for over a month now, in the heart of Big 12 play no less. And that’s not the only record she set last week. Lee tallied double-doubles in both of last week’s game, extending her current double-double streak to five games which ties the school record for consecutive double-double performances (joining Knedra Wecker and Nichole Ohlde). Plus, her rebound total for the season now sits at 282, which is now the freshman record for a single season (breaking Kendra Wecker’s mark of 264). She good.
The MittieCats get back in action tomorrow, as Iowa State comes to Bramlage for a 6:30pm CST tip that will be available on Big 12 Now on ESPN+.
The WeberCats are back in action tonight, to kick off a “hell week” where the Wildcats will play the #2 and #1 teams in the nation. Tonight, the #2 Baylor Bears will host the Wildcats for a 7:01pm CST tip from Waco, with the game available on Big 12 Now on ESPN+.
Bruce Weber was reprimanded (nearly a week later...) by the Big 12 office for his comment on officiating and missed block/charge calls following the Texas Tech game last week. Freshman forward Montavious Murphy may miss more time this season as he deals with a resurfacing of the knee injury that sidelined him earlier this season. Former K-State assistant coach Alvin Brooks has been a part of Baylor’s surprise season. And K-State keeps losing games, and part of the problem is too many simple mistakes.
The K-State women finished strong, ending their tournament 7th overall behind the work of Niamh McSherry, who had a career-low round of 68 on the final trip around the links, and a 54-hole best score of 210 (-6), to finish 12th on the individual leaderboard.
The men were unable to play the second round of their tournament, as persistent rains over Puerto Rico prevented the round from being played yesterday.
