K-State women's basketball freshman guard Shaelyn Martin is growing her game every time she steps on the court. After starting every one of the Wildcats' 24 games this season, she's beginning to feel more like a veteran player and less like a rookie.

Letter from A.D. John Currie - February 13

Good Afternoon K-State Nation,

It's going to be a busy weekend for the Cats starting already today with track in Fayetteville and the first pitch of the 2015 season for K-State Baseball as the Bat Cats take on Iowa in Port Charlotte, Florida.  Our January thaw these last few weeks has enabled Coach Hill's troops to get in lots of work outside at Tointon Family Stadium, and we wish them well throughout the weekend and season!

Of course, it's already been a packed week which began for me on the West Coast as I traveled to California to give the college keynote with renowned sports reporter Bonnie Bernstein at the annual PACnet/Paciolan conference.  From there, I made my way to Indianapolis for a NCAA Administrative Cabinet meeting before returning home to MHK Wednesday just in time to meet my family at Bramlage and watch our women's big basketball win over TCU.

Chemistry is Key

K-State head coach Brad Hill used one simple word to describe his 2015 K-State baseball squad: new.

With only 14 players returning from last season, this year's Wildcat roster features nine freshmen and 13 transfers - a whole lot of new faces.
