K-State takes on Bellarmine to open the home slate

Well, the season opener could have gone better. Of course it certainly could’ve gone much worse as well, but an 82-69 loss in Las Vegas to #21 USC was probably not quite Jerome Tang had in mind for the opening game of his second season at Kansas State.

But it was a good loss in a way; as Tang said himself, they discovered their flaws quickly to open the season, which gives the team and staff much more time to work on things than if they hadn’t been truly tested until later in the season. So it’s a tough loss, but should prove to be a solid benchmark for this team this season.
