Bruce Weber was blunt in his analysis of Kansas State’s shooting struggles against Texas on Tuesday.
The Wildcats made 19 of 51 shots, including 3 of 19 from three-point range, during a 60-57 loss to the Longhorns, struggling mightily against a zone defense.
He chuckled when asked if those numbers concerned him.
“Has it been good any time during the year?” Weber said. “It is what it is.”
Never miss a local story.
Weber said it would help if Dean Wade and Stephen Hurt, who combined for 11 points on 12 shots Tuesday, could find their shooting rhythm. But he is taking a positive approach with his players.
“All I can ask is that they keep getting shots up in the gym,” Weber said.
Five games in five days
Big 12 official John Higgins worked his fifth game in as many nights Tuesday at the Erwin Center.
He called the K-State/Texas game after officiating, in order, games at Stanford, Minnesota, Arizona State and Kansas’ triple overtime victory over Oklahoma on Monday. Official Kelly Self also worked Monday at Kansas and Tuesday at Texas.
