The Frogs are home Saturday night against third-ranked Kansas State, Patterson’s alma mater and where he started his coaching career.
K-State jumped up to No. 7 in The Associated Press’ rankings on Sunday for its highest position since 2003. Oklahoma tumbled 10 spots to No. 16.
Kids nowadays. Often that statement is said with frustration or contempt, but it certainly can’t be used that way when speaking of the Lady Wildcats softball team at Dunbar High School.
Top-seeded Kentucky cruised into the Final Four for the second year in a row, blitzing Baylor with a dominating first half on the way to an 82-70 rout at the South Regional on Sunday.
Kansas State will host Texas A&M on Saturday in a matchup of teams trying to get off two-game losing streaks.
The Aggies have just seven takeaways this season, which ranks 118th in the country. DeRuyter says that number is “shocking” and that he’s never had a team with so few this late in the season.
The Wildcats (39-20) and Aggies (44-19) will meet again Monday, with the winner advancing to the super regionals.
