Corbin McGuire has another must-read Sports Extra covering the Cats' 12-day European tour to Italy, the Vatican, Switzerland, Austria and Slovakia. The team went 2-2, and got valuable experience in learning to play together. Individually, Kaylee Page and freshman Rachel Ranke led with 11.3 points each. Peyton Williams averaged 11.0 points and 8.8 rebounds a game. She's off to Volleyball through November.

|7/12/17 K-State is headed to Europe|
From August 2 - 13, the Cats will visit and play in Italy, Switzerland and Austria. A tour like this is allowed by the NCAA once every four years, and it allows extra practice. (K-State release)
|7/02/17 Missy Decker-Heidrick, Jay Heidrick talk about life during and after K-State|
The Manhattan Mercury has a very good feature story on Missy and Jay, who both played for K-State in the 1990s. Missy, who now does WBB broadcasts with Brian Smoller, had the unique experience of playing for Susan Yow, Brian Agler, Jack Hartman and Deb Patterson! Jay, an attorney, played for Tom Asbury. This is very enjoyable to read, as it really takes you back to some great times. I started going to WBB in 1996, when Jack Hartman coached part of 1995-96, and remember Missy playing. Of course, I saw every home game Jay played in, too.

|4/30/17 Shaelyn Martin and Kelly Thomson honored at the Powercat Achievement Awards|
For holding the highest cumulative GPA as a senior athlete, Kelly Thomson was presented the Scholastic Achievement Award tonight. (link) Shaelyn Martin was named Best Female Athlete in a Supporting Role. I'm not sure where "supporting role" comes from, as Shaelyn played in all 34 games, started in 26 of 34 and recorded the 4th-highest minutes played. Shaelyn was second only to Breanna Lewis in rebounds, and she was second-highest in steals.

|4/26/17 Jeff Mittie: KBCA Coach of the Year|
I won't swipe the excellent write-up by K-State Athletics to announce that Coach Mittie is the Kansas Basketball Coaches Assn. Coach of the Year. The Cats won 23, made the NCAA tournament, saw Lewis make the WNBA, and Coach got his 500th win in December. Lewis and Wesemann made First Team All-Big 12. Thanks to the guidance of Jeff Mittie and his entire staff, the Cats Left No Doubt in 2016-17.
|4/13/17 Good for Lewis!|
Breanna Lewis was the #23 WNBA draft pick, selected by the Dallas Wings tonight. She and her teammates and coaches gathered at Jeff Mittie's house to learn the outcome, as she received support by telephone from her family.
As reported in Corbin McGuire's K-State Sports Extra, "Lewis holds K-State records in total blocked shots (282), blocked shots per game (2.20), blocks in a single game (8) and a single season (97). The three-time All-Big 12 pick also finished her Wildcat career with 1,552 points and 865 rebounds, which rank ninth and fifth at K-State, respectively."

|3/30/17 Wesemann Wins Pair of 3-Point Titles on Thursday Night|
K-State WBB's First Team All-Big 12 senior (who needs no introduction), Kindred Wesemann, shared the limelight with the men's BB dunk champion on ESPN's main channel tonight! As seen below, she was the national three-point winner in this year's State Farm Slam Dunk & 3-Point Contest. This is going to get all kinds of coverage, so here's a link collection for you.

|3/20/17 #6 Stanford defeats K-State in NCAA second round play, 69-48|
The second quarter was the problem. Stanford led by five after Q1, the teams tied in Q3 and Stanford outscored the Cats by 3 in Q4. It was their 22-9 advantage in Q2 that made the difference.
Stanford's defense was outstanding. Kindred Wesemann, with 11 points, was our leading scorer, followed by Bre Lewis with 9. The Cats were held to 39% on FG, and 27% on threes.
Coach Mittie revealed that this was "the most banged-up team" he's ever gone into a tournament with. He said there has been a great deal of time in the training room for players like Wesemann to be able to get on the court today.
It was disappointing to not advance, but what a wonderful season! The Cats ended at 23-11. They beat Oklahoma, West Virginia, Drake, Oklahoma State, Auburn and Iowa State, among others, and gave #1 UConn a good game.
They beat KU twice, naturally. That series in recent years stands at 29 wins of the last 35 games, and 7 straight wins. They won the Island Division of the Paradise Jam in November. The Cats ended the regular season ranked #24, and alone in 4th place in the Big 12 Conference. It was a very fine season.
Finally, thanks to Kindred Wesemann, who I believe may be the greatest emotional leader K-State Women's Basketball has ever had.

|3/18/17 Cats end Drake's 22-game winning streak / advance in NCAA tournament|
It was an exciting afternoon in the Octagon, and a close game until late in the 4th quarter, but K-State defeated the Missouri Valley champs, Drake, 67-54 in the first round.
Breanna had a big day. She played with confidence vs. strong defense, ending with 11 rebounds and 23 points. Kindred Wesemann was guarded heavily, but ended with 16 points. There was balanced scoring among the other players.
#6 Stanford is next on Monday night, March 20. They struggled with New Mexico State, but didn't get their top 10 ranking for nothing. It will be a good one. By the way, K-State's #14 ranking in Division I attendance no doubt played a part in getting the opportunity to host. Tonight's attendance of 4,005 was below our season average. Let's pack the house on Monday!

Thanks, Kayla Goth! She came off the bench and played 31 minutes. While her percentages weren't sky high, she kept grinding it out, ending with 25 points, five rebounds, 6 of 6 on free throws and a Wildcat victory! (Kayla Goth interview video)
The first quarter was a disaster, with the Cats at 13% on field goals, but they didn't fold. They came up to 53% in Q2, and 66% in Q3 (along with 100% on free throws). In Q4 the Cats dropped to 20% on FG and 0 of 7 on threes, but hit 14 of 14 free throws to seal the victory.
Kindred Wesemann and Eternati Willock each had 12 points. Breanna Lewis and Shaelyn Martin had six. Willock led in rebounding, with 10. Baylor's up next, on March 5 at 1:30 P.

|2/21/17 K-State records a signature win over #16 Oklahoma, 79-71|
"Lead change - 0" may be my favorite entry in tonight's box score. Except for one tied score, the Cats led the rest. They held a lead of about 12 points through much of the first half, and led by 16 (41-25) at halftime.
Karyla Middlebrook led with 19 points, Breanna Lewis had 18, Kindred Wesemann had 13, and Eternati Willock added 10. K-State led in rebounds, 39 to 29, with eight from Lewis and seven from Middlebrook and Willock.
Free throws were a big part of the story. KSU made 20, and OU made 5. Middlebrook made 8 of 11, and Lewis made 6 of 9. Shaelyn Martin, Kindred Wesemann and Lanie Page each had a perfect 2 of 2.
This is the sort of game that catches the eyes of the selection committee. Coach Mittie commented that at 10-6 Big 12, this is the first time in seven seasons that the Cats will have a winning Big 12 record.

|OU Stats Summary
|2/18/17 Cats have a slow start, win the final three quarters: KSU 68, TCU 65|
K-State WBB equaled the 2015-16 season wins at TCU today, improving to 19-8, 9-6. Kindred Wesemann led with 19 points, and Kaylee Page added 15. While both players went 4-10 on threes, they both contributed in other ways, including Wesemann's six steals. Kindred had two consecutive threes, and the one with 1:55 to play gave K-State the first lead.
Up next: #19 OU on Feb. 21. Let's pack the house.

|2/11/17 K-State 80, Iowa State 68|
The Cats (18-7, 8-5) got a critical win today in terms of postseason position, with a couple of challenging games (e.g., OU and UT) to play. It was the annual Big 12 Pack the House game. Attendance was 8,099... second to the UConn sellout two months earlier. Iowa State's Coach Fennelly said, "Kansas State is a great team that played an outstanding game today."
Coach Mittie cited bench play as a factor, with 41 points from the starters and 39 from the bench. Kindred Wesemann was high scorer with 17, with a career day for Lanie Page, with 16 points. Lanie has been able to practice more of late, Coach says, and played a record 23 minutes this afternoon. She hit 3 of 5 on threes.
Shaelyn Martin, Kaylee Page and Eternati Willock each logged 6 rebounds, and Breanna Lewis, who was held to 7 points, contributed 8 rebounds.
(recap) (box score) (quotes) (highlights) (Collegian)
Finally, for her team-high 17 points vs. Iowa State, Tim Fitzgerald named Kindred Wesemann Wildcat of the Week on Sunday's The Drive show. (link) I think my favorite Wesemann play in this game was on defense, when Kindred deflected an Iowa State pass to Middlebrook, who took the ball down the court, and passed across the court to Lanie Page, who hit a spectacular three. What are we going to do without Wesemann?
|ISU Stats Summary
|2/09/17 Shaelyn Martin: CoSIDA Academic All-District!|
Shaelyn's 4.000 has earned her All-District honors, and she's one notch away from Academic All-American! Coach Mittie often mentions how adaptable she is to changing assignments on the court. Since she still has a perfect GPA as a junior, I think she's a lock for All-American. (link)
|1/28/17 Kindred Wesemann delivers doom in the Octagon|
The timing was great for a career high of 34 points for Kindred, whose Cats trailed by six at halftime vs. Okie State, and were down by as much as nine in Q3. Corbin McGuire tells the story of her big game in an epic K-State Sports Extra. Don't miss it. Her versatility... her ability to respond to different defenses... was quite a factor in her success, and both Coach Mittie and OSU's Coach Littell recognized her for that. Kindred, known for being our three-point guru, also drove to the hoop several times, scored and drew a foul, and proceeded to make 10 of 10 from the line, which allowed K-State to keep notching ahead late in the game. I edited a few clips of Kindred's big plays. (game recap)

Charlie Creme's Bracketology has the Cats hosting a 2017 NCAA tournament subregional, by way of a 4 seed. That sounds good to me!

Slept in on New Year's Day? You missed a really good one! (Attendance was a solid 4,825.) The Cats bounced back big-time after a visit to Waco. From early on, they were competitive. If fact, except for a four-point deficit in Q4, the 11-3 Cats led the other three, resulting in a comfortable 86-71 victory over 13-1 WVU.
Breanna Lewis led the way with 23 points and nine rebounds, followed by Kindred Wesemann's 16 points. Shaelyn Martin and Kaylee Page each had 10 points. The big difference in the game was the Cats' 32-point advantage in points in the paint.
