Today’s vocabulary word: Dearth. As in, “There is a dearth of K-State sports news to share with you this morning.” So scarce is the news, in fact, that we’re going to steal a story from ol’ Mizzou to kick things off.
The Tigers, of course, reached into the transfer portal to secure the services of former Wildcat swingman DaJuan Gordon. The Missourian believes his Chicago-bred hardnosed mentality will fit well in the Cuonzo Martin system.

It is Every Day Should be Saturday charity bowl season. K-State fans have traditionally outpunched their weight class in the event, which benefits New American Pathways, an Atlanta nonprofit that provides assistance to new Americans in metro Atlanta.

Happy Tuesday, everyone!
