MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) _ Kansas State finished its first season
under new coach Bob Huggins with a 23-and-12 record, and fans are
already looking ahead to next year.
The Wildcats finished fourth in the Big 12 with a 10-and-6
conference mark, their best record since the conference started.
They also broke a six-year post-season drought by reaching the
second round of the N-I-T.
Freshman forward Bill Walker looked like a star in the making
when he joined the team near mid-season, but he suffered a
season-ending knee injury in just his sixth game.
And Huggins says he wants 6-foot-5 forward David Hoskins to work
on his outside shooting for next year. Hoskins averaged 14 points a
game, and Huggins says he will be really hard to guard if he can
make his perimeter shots consistently.
Huggins also has a top recruit in 6-foot-9 Michael Beasley, who
would be a lottery pick if the N-B-A hadn't changed its rules to
require players to be at least 19 before entering the league.
