Southwell starts

Shane Southwell, a junior guard, got his first start of the year with Nino Williams still recovering from a shoulder injury he suffered against Gonzaga. Southwell played a hybrid position, posting up inside and bringing the ball up the court. He handled it well, scoring eight points, grabbing seven rebounds and dishing out three assists in 36 minutes. But Southwell thought he could do better. He was upset he didn’t make more shots and limit his turnovers. “It was a mediocre game for me,” Southwell said. Williams is expected to play against Florida.

Few minutes for Henriquez

Despite making all four of his shots, scoring eight points and grabbing two rebounds, senior forward Jordan Henriquez only played 10 minutes on Tuesday. Thomas Gipson and Shane Southwell played well inside and took away some of the minutes that would normally go his way.

Snyder up for award

Bill Snyder is up for the Paul “Bear” Bryant Coach of the Year Award for the second straight year. The K-State football coach was named a finalist for the honor on Tuesday along with James Franklin of Vanderbilt, Urban Meyer of Ohio State, Bill O’Brien of Penn State, David Shaw of Stanford and Kevin Sumlin of Texas A&M.
