Kansas State Wildcats
Kansas State was coming off of a three-game stretch that included a hard-fought win over Texas, a heart-stopping OT victory over Kansas and a double-OT defeat at Baylor.
The Big 12 has made three changes to its 2014 football schedule. Two Oklahoma game dates have been switched.
Will Spradling scored a season-high 17 points, and the Wildcats made a series of foul shots down the stretch to preserve a 66-58 victory on Tuesday night.
Odyssey Sims scored 20 points as No. 12 Baylor rolled over Kansas State 71-47 on Wednesday.
Jonathan Holmes made a catch-and-shoot 3 pointer at the buzzer to send Texas to a 67-64 victory, the Longhorns’ fourth straight win in the Big 12 and second in a row over a ranked team.
Amric Fields knows TCU’s problem right now is that the Horned Frogs aren’t playing hard enough. And that came out again Tuesday night against No. 25 Kansas State.
Baylor coach Kim Mulkey knows teams will always be looking to beat her Lady Bears. Howeve, with Odyssey Sims’ leading the offense, Mulkey us confident in her team entering conference play.
Texas Tech’s Kliff Kingsbury will face off against a counterpart Saturday who’s more than twice his age and has been at the helm of a Big 12 team longer than any coach.
Leave it to Bill Snyder, the wizard who turned around the moribund program at Kansas State, to come up the most logical way yet to slow down No. 15 Baylor’s high-flying offense.
Kansas wasn’t about to share this title with Kansas State. Jeff Withey had 17 points and nine rebounds, Perry Ellis and Naadir Tharpe added 12 points each, and the seventh-ranked Jayhawks pounded the No. 11 Wildcats 70-54 on Saturday night to win their ninth Big 12 tournament championship.
Even though the Horned Frogs lost 79-68 to Kansas State on Tuesday night, first-year coach Trent Johnson said that the team can’t do much better.
For all the highlights and dunks that Brittney Griner has had in four seasons for Baylor, she saved one of her best performances for her last regular-season game.
