Kansas State honored former standout basketball player Jack Parr with a moment of silence before the start of Wednesday’s game.
Parr died at his Lindsborg, Kan., home over the weekend at the age of 78.
He was a two-time All-American at K-State during 1955-58, scoring 1,184 points and grabbing 819 rebounds.
A memorial service is scheduled for 11 a.m. Jan. 17 at Presser Hall on the campus of Bethany College.
Though none proved serious, K-State battled injuries throughout the game. Thomas Gipson and Nino Williams both rolled their ankles and had to leave the game for a few minutes, while Wesley Iwundu was seen favoring his right hand, which he had sprained against Oklahoma State.
Johnson high on K-State
TCU coach Trent Johnson thinks K-State will respond after its nonconference struggles to have a solid season.
“We knew Kansas State had a good basketball team; they just played a difficult schedule,” Johnson said. “They will be a team to be reckoned with.”
