Special things can happen for this senior-led Kansas State basketball team

Kansas State got good moments from Xavier Sneed, Makol Mawien and others on Saturday.

But Saturday’s game that delivered a Big 12 basketball championship to the Wildcats with a 68-53 triumph over Oklahoma belonged to the program’s big three.

At times, seniors Dean Wade, Barry Brown Jr. and Kamau Stokes seemed to be playing their own game, on a level above the rest on the floor.

In the first half, Stokes spotted Wade breaking toward the basket from the baseline and fired a strike in stride. Wade finished the play with a reverse slam. “I’m like, Hey, Dean, do that stuff all the time,” K-State coach Bruce Weber said.
