But at least we’ve simplified the “Gordon” situation.

NCAA Basketball: Big 12 Conference Tournament-Kansas State vs TCU
One Gordon remains.

Basketball

As announced yesterday by Bruce Weber, sophomore forward Antonio Gordon has officially entered his name into the transfer portal and will be departing Kansas State. Gordon had previously missed the final three games of the season due to unspecified “health issues”, but had been an irregular starter and key bench player for the Wildcats in his two seasons in Manhattan. Current college basketball trends suggest Antonio won’t be the last current Wildcat we see transfer this offseason, but there are currently no rumblings if anyone else is considering that option. The upside to this news is that we can finally just say “Gordon”, and not have to specify which one.

We also have your final Big 12 Power Rankings of the 2020-21 season, and it’s no surprise that even without a tournament title Baylor remains atop the conference. K-State nudged up ever so much thanks to another win over TCU and a better-than-expected showing against Baylor.

Golf

Heading in to day two of the George Hannon Collegiate, the Wildcats men’s golfers currently sit in a tie for 7th with West Virginia. The field of 13 includes eight teams ranked in the top 50, and the Wildcats sit ahead of #50 Little Rock and #31 Baylor. Action is underway right now, and as of this posting K-State is still even through four with Tim Tillmanns sitting in a tie for 14th individually at even-par.
