Kansas State entered the Puerto Rico Tip-Off with the best assist-to-field goal percentage in the Big 12 Conference. Through the first three games, the Wildcats made 65 baskets with 49 assists, a percentage of 75.3 But that changed against Charlotte, as the Wildcats made 22 baskets but managed only eight assists (36.4 percent).
Kansas State was whistled for six more fouls than Charlotte. The Wildcats had two players foul out and three others finish with four fouls each.
“There were some calls that I thought maybe we could have gotten, some things that didn’t go our way,” Kansas State coach Bruce Weber said. “We have to play smarter and go to the basket stronger and box out stronger, and hopefully we’ll get the calls the next time.”
