One prominent Kansas State graduate said he wasn’t thrilled with the ending of Tuesday night’s basketball game against KU.
“That was a good KU-K-State game last night,” Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback said Wednesday in a moment of levity with reporters.
KU’s Svi Mykhailiuk made a layup in the game’s final seconds to give KU the win. But it appeared that Mykhailiu traveled before making the game-winning shot.
The Kansas governor didn’t have any doubt that the winning play of the game should have been waved off by officials.
Never miss a local story.
“He absolutely traveled,” Brownback said. “He absolutely traveled. Now my wife would disagree.”
Brownback got his undergraduate degree from Kansas State and then graduated from KU with a law degree. His wife Mary is also a KU graduate, according to the governor’s website.
