Kansas State Defeats Texas Tech 94-60 but Soap Opera Continues in Manhattan

New, 3 comments

One of the comments in the K-State vs Texas Tech preview article stated that the perfect remedy for any team is to see the Red Raiders next on their schedule. This turned out to be exactly the case for the Wildcats as they pounded Tech today by a score of 94-60.

As is the case with K-State this season they could just simply not have a game played without some announcement being made beforehand. Frank Martin announced before the game that Freddy Asprilla has left the team to try and explore playing professionally in his native Colombia.

The actual ballgame today was never in doubt as Jacob Pullen hit a three pointer to score the first points and K-State never looked back in this one. By the first tv timeout the score was 10-4 in favor of Kansas State. By the second tv timeout it was 19-9, and you get the theme of this ballgame.

Shane Southwell was inserted into the lineup for K-State this afternoon and played a total of 30 minutes scoring 5 points and grabbing 5 rebounds. Also returning to the starting lineup after his six game suspension was Curtis Kelly, he finished with 12 points for the game.

K-State was led in scoring by Jamar Samuels with 22 points while Jacob Pullen scored 21 points. The Wildcats as a team were hot from deep going 13-22 overall.

Texas Tech was led in scoring by John Roberson who scored 19 points. The only other Red Raider in double figures was Brad Reese with 11 points. Fellow senior Mike Singletary only scored 8 points.

The win should give Kansas State some momentum headed into their road contest against Missouri who lost in overtime today at Texas A&M.

Meanwhile the downward spiral continues for Texas Tech with no real signs of when it will end. The only thing Tech fans can do is watch the Texas vs Oklahoma game today and hope that OU looks just as bad they did today.
