Kansas State beat Baylor last night in Manhattan by a score of 69-61. The game was basically a must win for K-State as their NCAA Tourney hopes could be argued rested in the balance. Instead of a full recap I thought some observations and questions might in order after watching that game.
As usual whether you agree or disagree (more likely) with me please let me know in the comments section.
- (1.) Bobby Knight and Brent Musburger still are not good announcers and made me happy I was not able to watch the whole game. I guess its good to have an announcer (Knight) point out obvious things and complain about players and tell us ad nauseum about shot fakes. Why does Knight continue to want to announce? Why does ESPN let him? Why did I continue to listen to him?
- (2.) The Preseason "stars" of Jacob Pullen and LaceDarius Dunn went a combined 8 for 30 from the floor. In my opinion neither player can create their own shots the way a true star can, they need a true PG playing in the backcourt with them. Makes me appreciate just how much Tweety Carter and Denis Clemente meant to these clubs.
