A stroll through the hallways of Ahearn Field House last week brought back some vivid memories and had me scurrying home to fetch an old newspaper story that I penned many, many moons ago.

I walked into Voice of the Wildcats Wyatt Thompson's office to chat the morning after K-State beat KU, 85-82, in Bramlage Coliseum, and was greeted by a friendly wave to sit down as he balanced his phone on his shoulder.

They dunk, they dazzle and yesterday afternoon, members of the Sky Squad took over Bramlage Coliseum for a very special halftime performance.

The K-State women's basketball team (10-15, 4-10 Big 12) returns home to Bramlage Coliseum this afternoon to take on the No. 13/14 West Virginia Mountaineers (23-3, 12-2) at 3 p.m.

Most would say that the talents of Lon Kruger, a Wildcat from 1971-74, and Steve Henson, from 1987-90, mirrored one another as Kansas State point guards.

When times get tough, K-State men's basketball junior Thomas Gipson is there for his team.
It's no secret he's grown into one of the team's key leaders this season, and it's no surprise that last night when everything started to go wrong for the Wildcats, he was right there to get his team back on track.

Letter from A.D. John Currie - February 19

Good Morning Wildcat Nation,

Another busy week of competition is ahead of us beginning with two important basketball games tonight as the men host TCU at 8 p.m. inside Bramlage, while the women are on the road and will square off with the Horned Frogs at 7 p.m. in Fort Worth. I hope you can make it out tonight and pack Bramlage with purple as Coach Weber's team continues to fight for positioning in the Big 12 standings as well as an NCAA Tournament berth. The men's game can also be seen live on ESPNU tonight, while be sure and catch the women's game on FOX Sports Southwest, along the K-State Sports Network and online at k-statesport.com.

Before we move along further with additional updates, I would like to report some exciting news about one of our staff members.

Of course, Chad would be the first to say that the true credit always goes to our donors! Click here for our full release, and again, congrats to Chad and the Ahearn staff!
