Does K-State Belong In The NCAA Tournament?

Does K-State Belong In The NCAA Tournament?

As I watched K-State lose to Iowa State (76-57) in the Big 12 tournament, still needing a win or two to make the NCAA tournament, it reminded me of the first game the Wildcats played this season against USC. Why, exactly? First, K-State scored 69 points and lost by 13 points to USC on November 6th in a game in which they had 17 turnovers. They shot 31% from the field and 24% from three-point range. Tylor Perry scored 22…

Rapid Fire 3/6/24

Rapid Fire 3/6/24

Let’s do some rapid fire today. I have a lot to say after the debacle we witnessed last night in Lawrence. Here we GO! -K-State lost to Kansas 90-68 on Tuesday night, pretty much putting to bed any hopes of an NCAA tournament bid. K-State will likely have to win the Big 12 tournament to get in, and that isn’t likely to happen. -I listened to Jerome Tang’s post-game press conference. He was mad. It was the first time I’d…

K-State Basketball’s Anomalous Overtime Streak

K-State Basketball’s Anomalous Overtime Streak

K-State won another overtime game on Monday night against West Virginia, extending Jerome Tang’s undefeated overtime record to 12-0. It is hard to find the words to describe this streak. Bizarre and anomalous are two words that come to mind. K-State pushing the latest game to overtime and winning it masked an infamous second-half collapse, as K-State blew a 25-point lead with 13 minutes and 30 seconds left. Instead of talking about the blown lead or even the fantastic performance…

Is K-State “Getting Better” As Jerome Tang Said?

Is K-State “Getting Better” As Jerome Tang Said?

It has been a disappointing basketball season for the K-State men’s team. They fell to 15-11 overall and 5-8 in the Big 12 conference after a 62-56 loss to the Texas Longhorns on Monday night. The Wildcats have lost seven of their last eight games after starting the conference season with a 4-1 record. This week I am focusing on the man in charge, Jerome Tang. Coach Tang has done a great job marketing himself and the program since his…
