After last night’s win vs. Oklahoma, Kansas State tried to downplay their thrashing at the hands of the Jayhawks from Saturday.
Bruce Weber was first up. Talking about Marcus Foster, he brought up that Foster actually dislocated his finger in the game against Kansas: “At Kansas he struggled, he dislocated his finger and I did not want to say anything about it, but he did get it hit one time and had to come out but he is tough. He seems to get hurt every day in practice. I think he is dying and I turn my head and he is back in there.”
Keywords: he didn’t “want to say anything about” the dislocated finger because he didn’t want to make excuses for Foster’s poor performance in Allen Fieldhouse. Foster had his worst game of the season, going 3-for-12 from the field, and scoring seven points.
But yeah, it was his finger, not Andrew Wiggins’ solid defense that did the freshman in.
But next is the most delusional statement.
Nino Williams of Kansas State called their performance in Allen Fieldhouse a “fluke.” He then said that Kansas State had their “worst game of the season” while Kansas “had their best performance of the year.”
Hey Nino, over the past 20+ years, Kansas has won on average by 14 points over Kansas State in Allen Fieldhouse. It wasn’t a fluke. It’s just the way it is.
