MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) _ This is not the first time that Brittany Chambers has had to shoulder responsibility for the success of Kansas State. In fact, she's been doing it for a while.

This year's challenge might be the toughest yet.

The Wildcats will be trying to follow up last season's 20-14 finish and their fifth trip to the NCAA tournament in six years by following a very different formula: They'll have to mix six experienced players with seven newcomers.

Yes, seven of them.

The Big 12 preseason coaches' poll reflected the uncertainty surrounding Kansas State, which was picked ahead of only TCU. It's the same place the Wildcats were picked to finish last season before rolling to another 20-win season and a fourth-place finish.
