"I just told Victor I've done him a disservice the last couple games, because he deserves to play and I've been playing the guys who look good in pictures," Martin said. I'm a little tired of the game being over and our bigs having zero defensive rebounds. "They're good kids, I like them, but they're not producing. So it's time to move some stuff around."

Presbyterian is a small college located in Clinton, S.C. It has an enrollment of 1,200 students, approximately the same number Kansas State crams into a Tuesday economics lecture. The school's mascot is the Blue Hose, the Scottish warriors depicted in "Braveheart," and there's probably a metaphor in there somewhere if you want to fish it out. The point is, Presbyterian put a serious scare into the third-ranked Wildcats, who survived for a 76-67 win Thursday at Bramlage Coliseum.

"You saw the ugly side of our team today," Martin said. "A group of young kids with upperclassmen that provide absolutely no leadership. That’s our problem. When your best leader is a junior walk-on, your upperclassmen should go look in the mirror and figure that out."
