Wildcat happenings

Before discussing the awesome weekend our Kansas State athletes had I thought it would be fun to share this video clip of Will Ferrell, proudly sporting his KSU sweatshirt.

Here is the description of the clip (warning they do use the "f" word so if you are faint of heart... Don't f'n play the f'n clip!):

What in the hell is Will Ferrell doing in the Little Apple (Manhattan, Kansas)? Eric Melin, co-host of Scene-Stealers.com, caught up with the comedy genius while on the first stop of his Funny Or Die College Comedy Tour. He was also promoting his new movie about the American Basketball Association, "Semi-Pro." After taking a brief tour of Manhattan's highpoints (i.e., the bars), Eric journeyed to a sold-out Bramlage Coliseum where Will f***ing Ferrell performed with Zach Galifianakas, Demetri Martin, and Nick Swardson. As Ron Burgandy, Ferrell also presented Kansas State University with an autographed Hammerhead shark. What more could you ask for? Enjoy Eric's one-on-one interview with Will Ferrell, even though he's no James Lipton. This interview is complete with trailer and clips from Semi-Pro the movie.

Here is a clip of part of his performance at K-State. For those not familiar with KSU, the creature he is kicking the cree-ap out of at the end is the dumb looking mascot of our arch rivals, a KU (K-Who?) Jayhawk

And here is yet another video uploaded last week of the whuppin visited upon said Chickenhawks (Jayhawks) last month and the pandemonium after the game . Dang, I just can't get enough of these, LOL!

It's good to be purple this weekend. The Wildcat men and women's team won handily (kicked butt to be precise) K...S...U...Wildcats!


MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) - Michael Beasley had 40 points and 17 rebounds for his 21st double-double to lead No. 18 Kansas State to a 100-63 victory over Missouri on Saturday.

Beasley leads the nation in rebounding, is fourth in scoring and is one double-double shy of tying Carmelo Anthony's NCAA freshman record of 22.

It was Beasley's second 40-point game and ninth with at least 30 points. He shot 12-of-22 from the field and 14-of-15 from the free throw line.

Bill Walker added 18 points and eight rebounds for the Wildcats (18-6, 8-2 Big 12), who shot 53 percent in the first half to cruise to a 52-31 halftime lead.

Beasley and Walker - the highest-scoring tandem in the Big 12 - accounted for 37 of the 52 first-half points, which was the highest-scoring half for the Wildcats all season.

Matt Lawrence scored 20 points on 6-of-11 3-point shooting to lead Missouri (14-12, 4-7). The Tigers, who fell to 2-7 on the road this season, went without a field goal for a seven-minute stretch in the first half as Kansas State went on 21-1 run to take a commanding 40-19 lead.

The Wildcats forced 24 turnovers and out-rebounded the Tigers 47-25.

The two teams split the season series, as Missouri handed Kansas State its first Big 12 loss two weeks ago with a 77-74 win in Columbia, Mo.


COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) -- Ashley Sweat and Kimberly Dietz each scored 15 points and No. 17 Kansas State held its lead in the Big 12 Conference with a 56-40 win over Missouri on Sunday.

After taking over first place in the Big 12 on Wednesday with a win over Iowa State and a Baylor loss to Texas, the Wildcats needed a win to remain there after the No. 8 Lady Bears beat No. 10 Oklahoma 79-59 earlier in the day.

It wasn't easy for Kansas State (18-6, 10-1 Big 12) as the Wildcats shot just 37 percent in the first half and led by only six points at the break.

Sweat scored seven points in the first seven minutes of the second half, Dietz made three 3-pointers and reserve Shana Wheeler scored six points in the same span to help extend the lead to 48-32 midway through the half.

The Tigers (8-16, 1-10), losers of nine straight, shot a season-low 22 percent. Leading scorer Alyssa Hollins, who averages 15 points, struggled from the floor, shooting 5-for-19 with 14 points. Jessra Johnson recorded her fourth double-double of the season with 13 points and 12 rebounds.

Missouri went more than seven minutes in the second half without scoring a point, after which Kansas State led 51-34.

Shalee Lehning added 11 rebounds and six assists for Kansas State, which has won 12 of its last 13 following a 5-5 start.
