Kansas State Cancels Rest Of Brazilian Basketball Trip

The Kansas State Wildcats men's basketball team was unable to finish the basketball portion of their Brazilian trip as planned when a scheduling conflict canceled the Cats' final game.

K-State was 2-2 on the trip and expected to play Botafogo Club on Wednesday but the game fell through leaving a tough final basketball memory from Brazil for coach Bruce Weber and his team. Weber was ejected in the fourth quarter of the team's loss to Tijuca Club in Rio de Janeiro on Monday.

The team will be back in Manhattan on Friday after spending their last day in Rio de Janeiro. Weber was happy with trip which allowed the team to get a little boost heading into the season with a new coach.

"Overall, I think it was a good trip," Weber said. "First, we had 10 days of practice before the trip that allowed us the opportunity to start implementing our system. This trip has been a great chance to get to know our players better on the basketball court, but personally as well.

"We had some difficult circumstances. I wish we wouldn't have had such a tough competitor in game one. I would rather slowly build up the competition as the trip goes on. However, it was good for our guys and now we know what we need to focus on when we get back."
