The Kansas Jayhawks didn't know what they were getting into when they walked into Bramlage Coliseum on Monday night to play the Kansas State Wildcats. KU basketball was the No. 1 team in the country and they were supposed to defend that ranking and dominate the Wildcats, who were in disarray after multiple players left the team, a few suspensions and the latest drama surrounding Curtis Kelly.
And then K-State went out there and beat up on KU. Nothing surprises me about college basketball anymore but this one is pretty close.
K-State, if you ask me, had no business going in there and playing the way they did. I thought we had written K-State off weeks ago, yet here they were making themselves relevant on a national stage. Jacob Pullen put together an incredible night scoring 38 points and hitting on 5-of-6 3-pointers while his supporting cast had a terrific night as well.
Kansas State showed why folks like me have been waiting and wondering when they'll turn into a team that looks more like the 2010 team. We know they have the talent so it's just a matter of putting it together When they do put it together, like Monday's game against Kansas, it's a thing of beauty.
I may have to revisit the idea of writing Kansas State off. They showed that, even with a 17-9 record, they can still play when they want to.
