Wildcat Report (Jan. 8)

The future? Kansas State and Missouri met for the 234th time in history on Saturday, a series that dates to Feb. 7, 1907. That series could soon be coming to an end with Missouri’s move to the SEC, and Kansas State coach Frank Martin was asked whether he'd be interested in playing a non-conference game against Missouri at Bramlage in the future.

“I don’t know,” he said.

Martin said it was always a possibility before adding that he’d thought little about future schedules. The Wildcats’ schedule for next season is nearly complete.

Worth noting

K-State recorded its 1,500th victory in program history during Saturday’s win against Missouri. The Wildcats, who are 1,500-1098, have 107 victories during Frank Martin’s four-plus seasons. And the latest win was Martin’s sixth against a top-10 team. . . . Missouri finished the first half with five field goals, including four from Marcus Denmon. The rest of the Tigers were a combined 1 for 15 from the field. . . . The Wildcats have won eight straight against Missouri at Bramlage Coliseum by an average of 16.3 points per game.
