NBA Draft Blog Interview with Jamar Samuels

The influence of a college coach can be almost as diverse as the coaches themselves.  Whether you liked Kansas State’s Frank Martin, or cringed when you saw him seething on the sideline, it was easy to tell that his players were prepared to do anything for him.  That ability in itself is of great value to basketball players of any level, and nobody exemplified it more on Martin’s...

Kansas State loses 75-59 to top-seeded Syracuse

Kansas State had to play a man short in its biggest game of the season. The way top-seeded Syracuse played in the second half, it really didn't matter. A day after they found out leading rebounder Jamar Samuels would be held out because of an eligibility issue, the eighth-seeded Wildcats more than handled themselves on the boards. But they couldn't stop the Orange from scoring...
