Cartier Diarra hadn’t had a chance to check his phone.

He was too busy taking care of an eye injury, the result of friendly fire. In the aftermath of Kansas State’s 74-67 victory over No. 13 Kansas on Tuesday at Bramlage Coliseum, every Wildcat fan in sight wanted to congratulate Diarra, a third-year sophomore guard. His windmill dunk with under a minute remaining, bound to be remembered and replayed in K-State highlight reels and hype videos for years to come, made him the object of every Wildcat supporters’ affection.
