K-State Coach Jerome Tang Challenges Wildcats Fans

First-year head coach Jerome Tang has the Kansas State Wildcats firing on all cylinders. After three consecutive wins against Top 25 teams to open Big 12 play (WVU, Texas, Baylor), two of which came on the road (Texas, Baylor), the Wildcats coach has issued a challenge to fans.


Tang is calling for fans to restore their home-court advantage to the octagon of doom days.

“It’s time for K-State family to show up on Tuesday and be a home-court advantage for our guys. It should be standing room only in that arena because of the effort these dudes are giving and in how they represent the university on and off the court,” he said after beating Baylor 97-95 in overtime on Saturday.

The Wildcats are currently tied for first with the Kansas Jayhawks, both sharing a 14-1 overall record and a perfect 3-0 in conference play.

K-State started conference season off with an upset win against 24th-ranked West Virginia, then a 116-103 upset against 6th-ranked texas, followed by an overtime win against 19th-ranked Baylor to give the Wildcats some notoriety.

The Wildcats take on Oklahoma State in a home game on Tuesday the 10th at 5:00. Tang’s group looks to continue their stellar start to the season, and is planning to do so in front of a sold-out crowd.
