    Marcus Foster wasn’t sharp, Nino Williams got hurt early, Kansas State couldn’t make free throws and West Virginia’s defensive pressure was relentless. The 17th-ranked Mountaineers played 40 minutes of full-court pressure defense and forced the Wildcats into 25 turnovers on the way to a 65

    Harris plays big minutes in Nino’s absence

    Kansas State freshman Malek Harris said earlier this season he’d always been aware of Nino Williams’ on-again, off-again knee problems. But going into Tuesday night’s game against No. 17 West Virginia, Williams had been on fire — scoring a combined 60 points in the last three

    Back in November, Kansas State needed every bit of Nino Williams’ 14-point, 12-rebound performance to hang on and beat Bradley. It was the third game of a stretch of six straight that saw Williams score in double figures — the longest of his career — as he

    K-State dedicates Tex Winter Drive

    After the applause died down and Tex Winter turned around to see the limestone marker emblazoned with his name, there was a smile and a sound of surprise that escaped the former Kansas State coach. On Saturday, K-State held a short ceremony to dedicate the

    Junior guard Justin Edwards said Saturday he’s learned to simply relax and let the game come to him. The transfer from Maine, who sat out last season, has probably been knocking some rust off, too. Edwards was zen in the second half Saturday afternoon

    By now, January 3 probably feels like a long time ago. That was the day Kansas State opened the Big 12 schedule with a crushing, 61-47 loss at Oklahoma State, the Wildcats’ third straight defeat. Marcus Foster hardly played that day, and when he did, he gave

    K-State to honor Winter on Saturday
