And it continues.
Kansas State basketball has dismissed yet another underclassmen from their program. Malek Harris is the newest victim of the spring cleaning coach Bruce Weber is performing on his team.
Harris was suspended along with teammate Marcus Foster in February for violating team rules. Both have now been dismissed from the team for what Coach Weber calls “not living...
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 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...
MANHATTAN, Kan. -- Kansas State will likely be without Nino Williams for Saturday's game against No. 9 Kansas after the starting forward hurt his left knee in a loss to West Virginia.
Williams only played 8 minutes in Tuesday night's game. He spent a few minutes riding a stationary bike before halftime, and then spent the entire second half on the bench.

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...

MANHATTAN, Kan. -- Nino Williams had 20 points and Marcus Foster had 13 points as K-State knocked off Savannah State 73-53 on Sunday night.
The Wildcats move to 4-0 all-time against the Tigers with all games between the two schools coming in the last 10 years.
It was also the sixth time that Williams has scored in double figures this season.
Terel Hall had 17 points to pace the Tigers...
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...
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...

Despite Kansas blowing out Kansas State in today’s big rivalry game, it was a Jayhawk who let his emotions get the best of him in the second half. KU’s freshman center Joel Embiid was ejected after elbowing KSU’s Nino Williams following a box out attempt in the paint. Kansas fans were not thrilled with the call, given how mild it seems on video.
While it was clearly a foul...
