Lawrence, KS– Same song different verse. In a game where K-State was looking to deliver a knockout punch to KU’s conference title hopes, they received a knock out punch themselves, over and over and over again.
KU came into Sunflower Showdown following a 3 game losing skid to OSU, TCU, and OU. They did all they did to prove why they were ranked No. 2 in the nation just a few short weeks ago, finishing off K-State 83-62 in front of a sold out Allen Field House.
The Cats got off to a decent start, only trailing KU by 3 points at the first media TO. But following foul trouble for both Henriquez and Gipson, KU went on a 21-6 run to blow the game wide open in the first half.
Kevin Young added the exclamation point with an easy dunk to end the half and send K-State into the half down big, 47-29.
Maybe it was the losing skid, maybe it was returning home, or maybe it was just because it was his birthday. Whatever the reason, KU star Fr. Ben Mclemore went off, finishing with 17 in the first half alone, and 30 overall.
“It happens, we’re still in first place, and if we win the rest of our games we win the league, we cant let one loss become two losses” Weber said after the game.
K-State tried to make a push in the second half, cutting the lead down to 15, but KU quickly responded with a run of their own to quickly finish off the Cats small hope at a comeback.
But no one played great for K-State. K-State was outrebounded by KU 41-23. Coupled with 14 turnovers, K-State lacked the spirit and fight that made them so deadly in their past 4 victories.
In the end, its not the end of the world for K-State. KU arguably played their best game of the season, while K-State played its worse. K-State is still level on games with the Jayhawks and a share of the conference title is still within reach.
Maybe its the weather, or just bad luck but K-State does not play good in Allen Fieldhouse. Last season the Cats bounced back from a blowout in Lawrence, with a dominating victory over No. 6 Missouri. A bounce back victory over Baylor on Saturday and K-State can easily get back on track. Let this loss blossom into two and K-State can kiss their conference title hopes goodbye.
