Kansas State Wildcats
Kansas State and Baylor each entered Wednesday tied for first-place in the Big-12 but it was only K-State that finished the day atop the conference standings.
The Wildcats beat Kansas in Manhattan to take sole-possession of the top of the conference. Iowa State also has seven Big-12 victories but one more loss than K-State.
The ‘Cats were sloppy from the free throw line, where they hit just 14-of-24 charities but the Jayhawks were sloppy in the open floor, turning it over 23 times to just 11 assists. It wasn’t a particularly beautiful game to watch.
In the end, K-State’s defense and three-point shooting (10-for-24) were enough. That’s what the ‘Cats do and it’s what they’ll have to do if they want to replicate their Elite Eight run of a year ago. The draw probably won’t be as easy, even if they are more than a 9-seed.
Baylor entered Wednesday’s game the hottest team in the conference but a trip to Texas cooled the Bears right down. Kerwin Roach went 7-for-9 from the field and turned it over just once en route to 21 points. Baylor turned it over 14 times with just 13 assists in the loss.
Baylor didn’t shoot the ball poorly. It finished 49 percent from the field, including 7-for-18 from three. It was just that Texas shot it even better — 55 percent and 8-for-20 from three — that, and the turnovers.
The Longhorns have looked, perhaps, most impressive, at times in the Big-12 but they have suffered some bad losses, too. Baylor can pull even with K-State by defending its home court in this game. Of course, that wouldn’t do the rest of the conference well if it’s just trying to snap Kansas’ 14-year run as conference champion. The Jayhawks have four losses in Big-12 play.
These two teams play a second time, in Kansas, on March 2.
