Holding Hield

Barry Brown and Wesley Iwundu drew the unenviable task of defending Oklahoma star Buddy Hield on Saturday. Though he scored a game-high 31 points, Kansas State coach Bruce Weber thought they did a good job under the circumstances.

Wildcats fall to 0-3 in the Big 12.

“Barry gave us great effort. He just has to slow down at times, but you love his energy,” Weber said. “He is a lot like Buddy. I really believe that. He loves to play. He is a hooper. He had 19 (points) and eight (rebounds). Buddy still made shots, but I think Barry did a pretty good job on him.”

Hield scored his 31 points on 11-of-14 shooting, including six three-pointers.

Iwundu started against Hield, but picked up an early foul. Weber favored Brown in Iwundu’s place most of the second half.

Weber said it will go down as a good experience for both players.

Brown said the hardest part about defending Hield was his versatility.

“He is constantly moving,” Brown said. “At one point the ball got in the post and I got caught ball watching. He ran over from the opposite wing all the way over to the other corner and I was still on the same wing.”

Lineup shakeup

Weber found success in the second half inserting bench players to his primary lineup. D.J. Johnson had 10 points off the bench and Brown added a team-high 19 while starters Justin Edwards and Wesley Iwundu combined for 12 points.

Dean Wade also came on in the second half to score 12 points.

Weber said he doesn’t want to alter K-State’s starting lineup, but he may have to if a shakeup helps
