No more road games

Kansas State players were happy about at least one thing following Monday’s loss to Oklahoma State: Its road schedule is finished. The Wildcats went 2-7 in away games this losing, with their only victories coming at TCU and Texas Tech, which have combined for five conference victories. K-State will play its final home game on Saturday against Baylor and then head to the Big 12 Tournament.

"We didn’t do well on the road at all," Spradling said. "We have played neutral-site games and we did a lot better at those. Hopefully we will be able to carry that over into tournament play."

Smart gets senior treatment

Oklahoma State star point guard Marcus Smart is only a sophomore, but he was honored during senior day ceremonies on Monday. He passed on the NBA Draft to come back to school following a strong freshman year, and has said he will turn pro at the conclusion of the season. He said the game was a special experience for him. His teammates were happy for him. But they were happier about the win.

"I don’t want to say we’re a lock (for the NCAA Tournament)," said Phil Forte. "But there is some weight lifted off our shoulders."

Notes

Bruce Weber said sophomore forward D.J. Johnson has been slowed by an ankle injury since K-State beat Kansas, and he wasn’t playing at 100 percent on a quick turnaround following Saturday’s victory over Iowa State … Jevon Thomas and Nigel Johnson were both held scoreless filling in for Will Spradling … K-State got 15 bench points a game after scoring 38.
