USA Today/Coaches Basketball Poll: Kansas State Ranked At No. 22

The official results are in this week for the latest college basketball rankings and Frank Martin’s tenacious Kansas State Wildcats are finally being recognized on the national level, giving three local teams some credit in the latest USA Today/Coaches Poll.

The Wildcats are now 11-1 entering conference play and there’s a major match-up with the rival Kansas Jayhawks on January 4, which will either lift the Jayhawks spirits back toward the top ten (currently they are No. 15) or else the Wildcats will have their biggest win of the season in the books. If anything, it gives a local rivalry some national attention.
