Edwards continues to shine

No one on K-State’s roster is playing better than Justin Edwards at the moment.

The senior guard was far and away the Wildcats’ top player in a 71-70 loss. He did a little bit of everything, finishing with 20 points, eight rebounds and five assists.

He has now scored 11 or more points in six straight games.

“My last college games are coming up, so I am just trying to leave it all out there,” Edwards said. “Coach (Bruce Weber) always tells us to play with no regrets, so I am just trying to do that and leave a bit of a legacy here and just know that I play hard and that I love K-State.”

Wade battling confidence issues

K-State freshman Dean Wade continues to struggle with confidence.

Several times Monday, including the game’s final play, he hesitated with an open look.

“It’s pretty easy to notice he has hit a little wall,” Weber said. “I thought he was better after a little while. He will be fine. He is a good young man, and he cares a lot. Probably too much.”

Johnson healthy

D.J. Johnson briefly limped off the floor in the first half, and required attention from K-State’s training staff. But he returned after a short break and scored 16 points. Johnson said he simply fell awkwardly on his foot.
