Good sports?

Kansas State athletic officials stressed sportsmanship all week leading up Saturday’s game against Kansas. The school released a pro sportsmanship video on its YouTube channel and distributed cards to all students reminding them of the school’s sportsmanship policy, which asks fans to respect all opponents and coaches and to refrain from yelling and chanting obscene language.

K-State also sent a text message to students at halftime, reminding them of those rules, which were put in place in August before the start of football season.

The moves spawned negative feedback from some fans, but the game was played in front of the loudest Bramlage Coliseum crowd of the season.

Chants with curse words directed at the Jayhawks could be heard at various times during timeouts, but they were much quieter than in past years.

K-State approved of the crowd and even played the popular song "Sandstorm" in the second half as an apparent reward. K-State had previously banned the song at Bramlage in an attempt to discourage obscene chants.

K-State head coach Bruce Weber along with K-State forward Stephen Hurt (41) and guard Justin Edwards (14) talk about K-State's 72-63 loss to Kansas Saturday in Bramlage Coliseum. Kansas guard Frank Mason scored 16 points on 5-for-9 shooting, and N

Weber high on Ellis

K-State coach Bruce Weber has long been a fan of Perry Ellis, and his love for the KU senior didn’t stop on Saturday.

Weber said he thinks Ellis should be named Big 12 Player of the Year if Kansas wins the conference outright, even over Oklahoma star Buddy Hield.

“I hope people appreciate how good he is,” Weber said. “I know Buddy is maybe National Player of the Year, but I think Perry should be Player of the Year. If you win the league and if you take your team to the championship, you should be the MVP. That is what it is about.”

Lockett in attendance

Former K-State receiver Tyler Lockett was the guest of honor at Bramlage Coliseum on Saturday. Lockett, fresh off a Pro Bowl rookie season with the Seattle Seahawks, received loud applause from the home crowd when he was introduced before the game.
