Kansas State has moved on from the days when Jacob Pullen was running the show.
The Wildcats won 29 games two years ago and reached the NCAA tournament again last season, but that was with the most prolific scorer in school history in the backcourt.
Pullen has graduated now, leaving the team in the hands of Rodney McGruder, Jamar Samuels and a team that is deep on talent and short on experience. Sophomore guard Will Spradling will also be called upon to fill in for one of the best players in school history.
Coach Frank Martin says he's ''anxious'' for the start of the season because he believes his players have embraced the challenge of moving on without Pullen to rely on.
