A—11,990. Officials—Doug Sirmons, Don Dailey, Keith Kimble.

Big crowd a key

Kansas State played in front of a large crowd for the first time on Thursday, and the 11,990 fans in attendance made a noticeable difference. The Wildcats fed off crowd noise in the second half. But Mississippi coach Andy Kennedy might have been more impressed than anyone.

“We knew it was going to be a great environment,” he said. “This is my first time being here and I can’t say enough about the students here and how they get into it. You guys are a little spoiled. We don’t see that very often.”

Recruiting

Watching Thursday’s game had to be an interesting experience for Marvin Clark, a 6-foot-7 forward who plays for Sunrise Christian Academy and the MoKan Elite AAU program. He watched the action from behind K-State’s bench and was technically on an unofficial visit to the school, but he is also considering Mississippi.

Before the game, Clark said he will visit Ole Miss in late December and then make a decision between the Wildcats and Rebels. He also said Thursday’s game would have minimal impact on his commitment. He took an official visit to K-State before the season. He is considered a three-star recruit by Rivals.
