K-State takeaways: Cartier Diarra, small lineups and Xavier Sneed’s postseason zone

The Kansas State Wildcats don’t have a special nickname for Xavier Sneed when the postseason rolls around.

That needs to change ... immediately.

Sneed, a junior wing, plays his best basketball this time of year. And that trend continued during K-State’s 70-61 victory over TCU in the quarterfinal round of the NCAA Tournament on Thursday at Sprint Center. He torched the Horned Frogs for 19 points, seven rebounds and five assists. An excellent stat line, to be sure, but it doesn’t begin to describe the full extent of his production.

All of his shots felt like daggers.
