Good Afternoon Wildcat Nation,
It has been a few weeks since my last update, and I hope you have
managed to stay safe during the recent winter weather that has affected
most of the country. It's certainly been warm inside Bramlage Coliseum,
and I appreciate the terrific crowds that have played a huge role for
both our men's and women's teams.
Coach Weber and the Cats, winners of 10 of their past 11, will host
another big game tonight as K-State Athletics Hall of Famer Lon Kruger
and his No. 25 Sooners visit Bramlage. The game can be seen nationally
at 6 p.m. on ESPN2, while fans can listen to Wyatt and Stan along the
K-State Sports Network and FREE online at k-statesports.com.
Coach Patterson and the women's squad will also be in action at 7 p.m.
tonight as they face Texas Tech in Lubbock. That game can be seen live
on FOX Sports Southwest and heard along the K-State Sports Network and
also for FREE online at k-statesports.com.
Let's jump into a few updates from around the department.
Heroic Efforts Honored During Halftime Recognition
Last month I shared with you the story about one of our football fans
suffering cardiac arrest at the Oklahoma game and the heroic efforts of
nearby fans, staff and emergency personnel who helped save the
individual's life. During our recent men's hoops game against Oklahoma
State, we recognized both the individual recovering from the heart
attack as well as those involved in the rescue effort. It was an
emotional and inspirational time for everyone and illustrated how the
K-State Family looks out for one another. Click here for a recap of the
event that aired on Kansas First News
