Photo: Kansas State Students Mock Texas Tech’s “Guns Up” With The Ultimate Burn

The Kansas State student section is in full troll mode tonight, ready for the Wildcats’ Big 12 showdown with Texas Tech. The students, as part of their typical pregame ritual, are holding up an edition of The Collegian to “disrespect” their opponent as starting lineups are announced. Tonight’s newspaper, however, has an especially great cover page mocking TTU: its reads...

Wildcats go heavy on junior college transfers

The loss of six senior starters on defense provided Bill Snyder with a clear direction when building his 2014 signing class.

Joel Embiid’s health, ball-screen defense concerns after Kansas loss at Kansas State

The final three shots and Andrew Wiggins took in regulation in Monday night’s loss to Kansas State are a pretty good representation of what this season has been like for him. In the final minute with a chance to tie the game, Wiggins airballed a three. A couple of possessions later, he beat his man off the dribble and got into the paint, but his runner bounced off the backboard...

Spradling suddenly finds his game, and that's big news for K-State

MANHATTAN, Kan. -- For much of this season, Kansas State's Will Spradling has mostly been a decoy in the Wildcats' offense. And not a very good one at that. For the first 18 games, Spradling, a 6-foot-2 senior, was supposed to be the stationary kick-out threat, the guy who gets the open trey on the wing when the players inside get double-teamed. But for whatever reason, Spradling...

It’s not a very well-kept secret that there isn’t much love lost between Kansas and Kansas State. Two days ago, the Wildcats hosted the Jayhawks in Manhattan and came away with an 85-82 victory in overtime, avenging an embarrassing 26-point loss from earlier this season.

K-State 'waited until basketball season' for Kansas, 'now what?'

Kansas football is bad. There's no other way to say it. The beginning of the fall semester in Lawrence is usually just an anxious waiting period until the doors of Allen Fieldhouse open. In the Sunflower State, the Jayhawks dominate in basketball, and the Wildcats annually claim football bragging rights. Kansas State has won five in a row in football, but Kansas fans can always...

While Shane Southwell slumps, Will Spradling soars for K-State

Will Spradling and Shane Southwell are heading in opposite directions. Spradling is making shots and playing his best basketball in a Kansas State uniform after a mediocre (at best) start to the season. Southwell is committing fouls, bricking shots and losing turnovers like a freshman after a promising start to the year. They have effectively switched places. Check out the stats...

Unheralded freshman Foster driving K-State success

(Eds: APNewsNow. With AP Photos.) By DAVE SKRETTA AP Sports Writer There was no reason to suspect that Marcus Foster would be the driving force behind Kansas State's surprising success. Heck, it even caught him by surprise. Yet the lightly recruited guard out of Wichita Falls, Texas, just scored 34 points in a win over then-No. 15 Texas. The talented freshman followed that...

Michael Beasley Admits Blowing A Lot Of Money

Coming out of Kansas State in 2008 after averaging 26.2 points and 12.4 rebounds his freshman season, there were high expectations for Michael Beasley, that year’s second NBA draft pick.
