That just happened!
I have to confess my lack of confidence in the good guys tonight.
I knew K-State had a good team this year. Good? Hell, they have a damn good team.
But I just knew in the run-up to "the game" that even though K-State had its best team in years, so did KU. I joked around with the 'Hawks fans at work whether KU had any chance at all (even the VP of my group... gulp), all the while knowing that in all likelihood, they would walk out of Manhattan with "the streak" intact.
I watch the boys in purple play a solid first half and go into the locker room with a surprising 2-point lead knowing that with Bill Walker's three fouls, they were in rough shape for the second half.
Even with the 'Cats up by 10 with four minutes left, I saw us losing the lead because of fouls and too many 3-point attempts.
It wasn't until about 57 seconds to go that I was reasonably assured that the good guys would win.
So a sincere well-played to the 'Hawks, and a hearty congrats to the 'Cats.
I'm glad I was wrong.
