Stillwater, OK– K-States hopes of a conference championship now lie in the hands of the Baylor Bears. Oklahoma State ended the Cats hopes at an outright share of the Big 12 title with a 76-70 victory in Stillwater.
K-State trailed the Pokes 36-30 at halftime, and used a 20-5 run to take a 9 point lead midway through the second half. But through the efforts of Le’Bryan Nash and Marcus Smart, the Cowboys answered with a 12-2 run of their own to regain the lead over K-State.
Nash was solid all night scoring 24 points, and dominated down low for the majority of the game. K-State consistently gave up easy baskets to the Pokes, including Nash who was able to get a handful of easy dunks in the paint. Oklahoma State outscored K-State 36-24 in the paint.
K-State looked to be in control and on pace to their 1st Big 12 title, when McGruder buried a 3 in response to Marcus Smart alley oop which had cut the K-State lead to 5.
Nino williams, who scored 17 in the first meeting with the Cowboys, only managed 2 points in fifteen minutes on 1-4 shooting.
McGruder completed an old fashioned 3 point play with 4:45 to go, but K-State would not score from the field again until Spradling hit a three at the 20 second mark when the game was already out of reach.
Congratulations to Kristin from Lawrence for finding the Wildcat 91.9 leprechaun on Fake Patty’s Day in Lawrence. She wins concert tickets, Fake Patty’s Day beads, and 91.9 schwag! The Wildcat 91.9 leprechaun will be down in Aggieville again next Saturday for the St. Patrick’s Day parade, so be sure to stay on the lookout for him.
Fake Patty’s Day is this Saturday, March 9 and it’s been a staple party of the year in Manhattan, KS for the past several years. It is recognized by local law enforcement and they have vocalized they will be on alert and making sure participants are abiding by the law on Saturday.
SafeRide and The Riley Ride will be extending their hours on Saturday to ensure participants in Fake Patty’s Day won’t drink and drive. SafeRide will start running busses from noon on Saturday until 3am Sunday night, with extra busses running during peak hours. The Riley Ride will be extending their normal hours of operation until 4am Sunday night.
Have fun Saturday during Manhattan’s biggest party of the year, be smart and choose a safe way home. Spending the night in jail decked in green sounds a lot less fun.

Jason Beets announced the results of the SGA elections live on the wildcat 91.9. The broadcast included reports from the watch parties of both presidential tickets as well as reactions from the candidates themselves.
The 2013 SGA Election came to a close Wednesday night as the primary election results were tallied. Eli Schooley and Jake Unruh came out victorious as Student Body President and Vice President. Below is a link to the PDF of full election results.
MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) – Angel Rodriguez had 21 points and 10 assists and Shane Southwell and Martavious Irving both added 15 points as No. 9 Kansas State beat TCU 79-68 on Tuesday night.
With the Senior Night victory, the Wildcats (25-5, 14-3 Big East) stayed tied with No. 4 Kansas for first place in the Big 12 with one regular season game to play.
Kansas State seniors Jordan Henriquez, Irving and Rodney McGruder extended their career win total to 99, more than any class in school history.
Kyan Anderson had 29 points for the Horned Frogs (10-20, 1-16), while Devonta Abron added 10.
The Wildcats kept their distance for most of the game, but the Horned Frogs made it interesting early in the second half by slashing into a 42-27 halftime deficit with a 12-2 run.
Manhattan, KS– Following Saturday’s buzzer beating victory over Baylor, the Kansas State Wildcats have moved up 4 spots to No. 9 in the AP poll.
With just one week remaining in the regular season, K-State is in a great position looking ahead to the NCAA tourney. Currently projected as high as a 2 seed and as low as a 4 seed, K-state is also looking ahead to the possibility of winning their first conference championship since 1977.
With two games to play, Senior night against TCU and a road trip to No. 13 Oklahoma St., its looking to be a very big week for Kansas State basketball.
A win over both TCU and Oklahoma St., would earn K-State at least a share with the conference leading Kansas Jayhawks. But if Kansas loses at least 1 of its 2 remaining games, home against Texas Tech tonight, and a road trip to Baylor to end the season on Saturday, K-State will have a chance to win the conference outright.
If K-State manages to claim a share of the title, they will be the first team in the conferences history to claim shares of the Big 12 title in both football, and men’s basketball. A feat that will be remembered for a long time to come.
Fake Patty’s Day is coming up this Saturday and The Wildcat 91.9 is your lucky hook-up for prizes and concert tickets.
