Enjoying New York

K-State players arrived in the Big Apple on Monday. Jordan Henriquez, a New York native, said he has taken his teammates on walking tours of Time Square, and will continue to show them the city. Rodney McGruder said his best moment of the trip came when he sampled an authentic slice of New York cheesecake. “I got to eat at Junior’s,” McGruder said. “Really good cheesecake.”

A new streak

K-State’s victory over Delaware marked its first victory at Madison Square Garden. The Wildcats were 0-5 in the famous arena before Wednesday. Their first visit to the venue came in 1948 with K-State losing to Holy Cross in the Final Four. Their most recent trip came in 2007. Notre Dame won that game.

Hard falls

Will Spradling took a couple hard falls. The first came while he was diving out of bounds and crashed into the media table and fell in some soda. He quickly bounced up and ran up court, but had to sling the liquid off on his way. The second came while going up for a rebound. He was shoved to the ground by a Delaware defender, and a foul was called. He showed no pain after either fall.

Worth noting

K-State’s bench played a big factor in the victory. The Wildcats played 11 players, and tried to tire out Delaware’s smaller rotation. “You could easily tell that their players were really getting worn down tonight,” Spradling said.… Angel Rodriguez did a good job dishing out five assists, but struggled with four turnovers. Spardling’s assist-to-turnover ratio was much nicer. He had seven assists and no turnovers.… Henriquez and Omari Lawrence didn’t play great in front of home crowds. Neither of the New York natives scored.
