In keeping with the trend established yesterday, today’s Slate will be fairly light, though we’re caught up this time. Now it’s a matter of a lack of news.
But no matter — here’s what is going on.
Following Saturday’s loss to Baylor, the men’s basketball team has now tumbled out of both the AP Top 25 poll and ESPN’s Joe Lunardi’s NCAA tournament projections, now listed in Lundardi’s first four out. Now, it’s mid-January, so take bracket predictions with a grain of salt. Still, though, K-State remains without a signature win — but the Wildcats get another opportunity Wednesday night at Oklahoma State.
The women’s basketball team earned a No. 22 ranking in yesterday’s AP Top 25 poll, the Wildcats’ highest ranking this season. K-State (14-4, 4-2 Big 12) will ride a three-game win streak into Wednesday’s home tilt with TCU (9-8, 1-5).
The Wildcats eviscerated Oklahoma State on Saturday, 63-43.
