Postgame: Kansas 90, K-State 66

What went wrong for Kansas State during a 90-66 loss Saturday night at Allen Fieldhouse?

Let’s allow Jacob Pullen to answer that one.

“I’d select ‘D,’ all of the above,” Pullen said. “Everything. We don’t execute. We come out of timeouts and don’t know what we’re doing ... We’ve got to do a lot of things. We’ve got to be able to compete. If we can’t compete there’s no reason for us to even go out there and waste our time.”

Saturday’s loss was a deflating one for the Wildcats, all right. But they have little time to mope about it. Up next is a pivotal three-game stretch that will define K-State’s season.

If it can improve and find a way to beat Nebraska at home and then Iowa State and Colorado on the road, it will climb to 5-5 in Big 12 play and have a decent shot at making the NCAA Tournament. Anything less, and the NIT seems more likely. (more…)
