Kansas State basketball season ends, season awards

The 2014-15 season is (kind of) officially over for Kansas State basketball. I say kind of on the one-in-a-million chance that they pull an NIT bid out of thin air. But that is really really really unlikely, so for the sake of this article, I am going to assume that the season is over and the Wildcats have no more basketball to play and will get to sit at home and watch the other...

Kansas State basketball needs win at Texas

Kansas State basketball is in better position to make the NCAA tournament than they have been all season. The Wildcats have won back to back games against teams ranked in the top 12. They are currently in a tie with Oklahoma State for sixth place in the Big 12, and this Saturday is the last game of the regular season for both teams. While sixth place seems like a small prize, this...

Nino Williams scores 20 to help Kansas State past Savannah State

  With two weeks and change remaining before Big 12 play, Bruce Weber hopes his team understands the importance of the three games before the Jan. 3 date at Oklahoma State. After an underwhelming, turnover-ridden victory over Savannah State on Sunday night, the reality came into focus even more so for the Wildcats (6-4). Nino Williams had 20 points and Marcus Foster had 13 points...

Thanks to Williams, K-State bench might be the baddest beast in the Big 12

MANHATTAN, Kan. -- Laid out individually, they're like odd pieces of a basketball cadaver, contradictions looking for a home and a fit. Nino Williams has a big man's game in an off-guard's body. D.J. Johnson has a football frame (6-foot-9, 250 pounds) and, offensively, a football mindset. Jevon Thomas has a pair of turbo jets for feet but hands of iron (25.9 percent from the floor...

Kansas State rallies to beat No. 25 Oklahoma; Foster scores 18

Nino Williams was having a confidence crisis in November. Kansas State's junior forward had endured a miserable stretch of games, his shot never seemed to be falling, and he was suddenly spending most of games on the bench. So he sat down with coach Bruce Weber for a heart-to-heart meeting, and Williams came away emboldened. "He said, `Stay positive. You're going to get your chance...

Kansas fans were not thrilled with the call, given how mild it seems on video. While it was clearly a foul...
