No matter what happened during Kansas State’s first basketball road trip of the season – a four-game swing that presented new challenges at every turn – coach Bruce Weber insisted we would learn a lot about the Wildcats when it was over.
GAME NOTES: Sunflower State rivals will meet up at Bill Snyder Family Stadium on Saturday afternoon, as the 11th-ranked Kansas State Wildcats play host to the Kansas Jayhawks in Big 12 Conference action.
In the final moments of Kansas’ 87-60 victory over Rider, Wayne Selden jogged to the sideline and headed for the water cooler at the end of the Jayhawks’ bench. He poured a cup of water, leaned against a Gatorade rack, and gazed his eyes back toward the playing floor at Allen Fieldhouse.
With a spot in the championship game on the line, the Kansas State Wildcats and the No. 2 Arizona Wildcats will meet in the semifinal round of the Maui Invitational on Tuesday night at the Lahaina Civic Center.
