The good news is Kansas State avoided getting blown out in Allen Fieldhouse and there wasn’t an awful call to give KU a win. The bad news is that doesn’t really matter all that much at the end of the day, because the ‘Cats still lost, 73-72.
An atrocious final possession spoiled a great effort and any chance to blame the officials or anyone else for yet another painful loss to a team that still doesn’t look all that great by Kansas standards.
