Coach Walker and his boys have been playing better of late, but they would need to be at their best on Tuesday Night to topple the 13th ranked Kansas State Wildcats, a tall task for the Red Raiders last night at the U.S.A.
In the 1st half, Kansas State started fast, knocking down the three ball to give them the early two point lead.
Then Dejan Kravic would answer with the feed from Josh Gray, and they were tied at 7 in the first half.
But Kansas State would go on a run thanks in part to Angel Rodriguez, who knocked down the three ball to stretch the lead to 10.
But he wasn't done; another three stretched the lead to 13.
But back came Tech, with some help from the bench. Clark Lammert knocked down the three ball, to get it back to a 10 point game.
Then Toddrick Gotcher, off the steal, droped it off to Josh Gray who got the deficit to single digits.
Under three minutes to play in the half, Luke Adams drilled the three to get tech back within three.
But over the final couple of minutes of the half, the Wildcats would go on a run of their own.
They led by eight at the half and Tech would keep it within reach, but in the end, it was just not enough against the 13th ranked Wildcats, as they beat the Red Raiders 68-59.
