#20 - Kansas State Wildcats
2011/12: 22-11, lost NCAA Tournament Third Round
Key Returning Players:
Rodney McGruder - Shooting Guard - Senior
15.8 ppg, 5.2 rpg, 1.4 apg, 1.2 spg, 50-130 3Pts
Will Spradling - Point Guard - Junior
9.3 ppg, 2.1 rpg, 2.8 apg
Angel Rodriguez - Point Guard - Sophomore
8.3 ppg, 2.5 rpg, 3.2 apg, 1.3 spg
Jordan Henriquez - Power Forward - Senior
7.6 ppg, 5.8 rpg, 2.4 bpg
Top NBA Prospect:
New head coach Bruce Weber will have big shoes to fill from the departed Frank Martin, but he's got the resume to get it done. It helps that he has a veteran roster returning to Manhattan, led by All-Big 12 Second Team and Defensive Team honoree Rodney McGruder, as well as Defensive Team choice Jordan Henriquez, who gives the team an imposing presence in the middle (6'11" 250 lbs). Weber, and the talented roster, will ensure that K-State remains a force in the Big 12.
