New addition

K-State will soon welcome freshman point guard Jevon Thomas to the court. The newcomer enrolled at K-State last year, but has been ineligible to practice or play with the Wildcats since arriving on campus.

That will change Saturday, when he will become a full member of the team. K-State coaches have been high on Thomas since he signed. K-State coach Bruce Weber said he won’t be considered for playing time until at least Dec. 28, when K-State faces Tulane in Brooklyn. But he is expected to see the floor once he masters Weber’s motion offense.

Rising to challenge

After being held scoreless in his last game, Weber challenged Will Spradling to play at a higher level against Troy. He didn’t back down. The senior guard made four three-pointers and scored 14 points.

“It was good to see Will make some shots,” Weber said. “It was just a good, balanced game.”

Added Spradling: “I felt good all week. I have been doing well in practice, shooting the ball really well. Coaches have been on me to shoot the ball more. That’s something I focused on today.”

Football recruit

Danzel McDaniel, a cornerback from Dodge City Community College verbally committed to K-State on Sunday. He announced the decision on his Twitter account. McDaniel is a three-star defensive back, according to Rivals. He chose K-State over Nebraska, Iowa State, Arkansas and others.
