From The Couch – A Comfortable Win For These “Young Guys”

From The Couch – A Comfortable Win For These “Young Guys”

   A good win in game one of the Big 12 tournament tonight for K-State, beating TCU 71-50.  Nijel Pack led the Wildcats with 23 points, making five three-point baskets.  Mike McGuirl added 17 points. A strong defensive performance and a 16-0 run helped propel K-State to the victory. The competition gets much more difficult tomorrow against number one seed Baylor.  Baylor beat K-State twice during the regular season, by 31 points in game one and by 48 points in…

From The Couch – A Win’s A Win For K-State Basketball/I Receive Mean Tweets

K-State beat a horrid Iowa State team 61 to 56 on Saturday.  A win’s a win and it’s much better than being on the losing side of things.  The Wildcats proved they are not the worst team in the league, beating the 0-18 Cyclones for the second time this season and earning the number nine seed going into the Big 12 tournament. Senior Mike McGuirl had another great game, scoring 17 points.  Sophomore forward Antonio Gordon did not play.  Bruce…

Stuff from Joe’s storage room – “Hold The Mayo!”

   I tend to be a pack rat, especially when it comes to K-State stuff.  I’ve been cleaning out my storage room the last couple of weeks and found this old newspaper from 2008.  It was the first time K-State made the NCAA tournament since 1993 and the team was led by future NBA players Michael Beasley and Bill Walker.  They drew USC, led by OJ Mayo, in the first round.  OJ Mayo was considering going to K-State before committing…

From The Couch – Willie Murrell

From The Couch – Willie Murrell

Sometimes when I’m in Bramlage Coliseum and look up in the rafters at the Final Four banners and retired jerseys certain banners will stick out because not only do I not recall those years, but I don’t really know much about the players on those teams.  Willie Murrell is one of those players that K-Staters don’t talk much about, so I was looking forward to putting this blog post together to learn a little bit more about Willie.  I learned…
