Remembering Parr

Kansas State honored former standout basketball player Jack Parr with a moment of silence before the start of its game against TCU on Wednesday at Bramlage Coliseum.

Parr died at his Lindsborg home over the weekend at the age of 78.

He was a two-time All-American at K-State from 1955-58, scoring 1,184 points and grabbing 819 rebounds.

A memorial service is scheduled for 11 a.m. on Jan. 17 at Presser Hall on the campus of Bethany College.

Injury bug

Though none proved serious, K-State battled injuries throughout the game. Thomas Gipson and Nino Williams both rolled their ankles and had to leave the game for a few minutes, while Wesley Iwundu was seen favoring his right hand, which he sprained against Oklahoma State.

High on K-State

TCU coach Trent Johnson thinks K-State will respond from its nonconference struggles and have a solid season.

“We knew Kansas State had a good basketball team, they just played a difficult schedule,” Johnson said. “… They will be a team to be reckoned with.”
