I GOT FIVE ON IT – Curtis Malone

Finally tracked down the man, even though he wasn’t hard to find. Mr. Malone, the president of the D.C. Assault, K-State’s favorite AAU curtisorganization, has been at a bunch of home games at Bramlage Coliseum as of late. But I couldn’t catch up with him until Wednesday afternoon, and even then, I wasn’t sure what I should ask him. As fate would have it, I was tracking down something I’d written here on Chris Babb — nothing new there to report, sorry — and I stumbled across a list of questions for Mr. Malone from my pal Sys.

Bye, bye, bye

Nothing like like a little *NSYNC to snap you out of the afternoon doldrums, no?

Anyway, this dispatch comes straight from the Kansas State sports information office, courtesy of Tom Gilbert, or, as he’s also known, T-Bone:

I just talked to the conference office and Kansas State has officially clinched a bye at next week’s Big 12 Championship for the second straight season. The Wildcats will either be the No. 3 seed or the No. 4 seed depending on the results of the remaining games this week. The No. 4 seed would play Friday, March 14 at 2 p.m. CT at the Sprint Center against the winner of the game between the No. 5 and No. 12 seeds, while the No. 3 seed would play Friday at 8 p.m. CT against the winner of the game between No. 6 and No. 11 seeds.

There you have it. Have fun with the permutations.

Post-mortem, Colorado (03/05)

I’m going to start on an unconventional note. I love how Blake Young plays. He’s not perfect, not by any stretch, but he gives maximum effort. He was solid last night, hitting a big 3 in the second half.

It has to be said – does K-State lose if Bill doesn’t play as well as he did? How many more dramatic turns can this season take? At this point, is it even possible or realistic to guess what will transpire Saturday in Ames?
