Out of nowhere Frank Martin left to South Carolina and in comes former Illinois head coach Bruce Weber. Weber, who has fired from Illinois, inherits a pretty good roster at Kansas State.

MANHATTAN, Kan. -- He was sleepless after Seattle, two parts bruised ribs, one part bruised ego. Rodney McGruder had been rendered invisible against Gonzaga, missing eight of nine shots in Kansas State's 68-52 loss to the Bulldogs on Dec. 15 at KeyArena.
The Wildcats' star shooter got shoved and scraped and shoved some more, having largely been treated by the Zags the way...
Oklahoma State traveled to Kansas State on Saturday with just one win in its last 17 conference road games. The Cowboys were in position to get a Big 12-opening victory with the game tied in the final three minutes, but K-State’s Rodney McGruder had other ideas as he scored 26 points in the second half to lead the Wildcats to a 73-67 win over the Cowboys at Bramlage Coliseum.
