Off-week blues

K-State coach Bruce Weber had an unusual reason for the loss. He thought Oklahoma benefited from a week off leading up to the game.

It was the second time K-State played a Big 12 opponent coming off that much rest. The other was Iowa State, which beat the Wildcats at Hilton Coliseum.

“I hope the league looks at it,” Weber said. “This is our second game we’ve had to play someone off a bye week on the road ... If we are going to have a good league, we need to have a balanced schedule for everyone.”

Southwell returns

Shane Southwell saw his first action since injuring his left ankle against Kansas and missed two games. The senior guard came off the bench to score four points in 16 minutes.

Weber said he could have played Southwell more, but didn’t want to push his injured left foot. Southwell left the game wearing a walking boot as a precautionary measure.

“We need him to keep getting better, a few minutes here and there,” Weber said. “He hasn’t practiced. He needs to get back in a game rhythm.”

Freshmen fury

K-State’s four freshmen combined to score 43 points, a season high for the group. Marcus Foster led the way with 21 points, while Nigel Johnson scored 11 points, Wesley Iwundu added eight points and Jevon Thomas had three points.

Weber said it was an encouraging sign, but pointed out that none played quality defense.
