Kansas State point guard Tylor Perry made headlines on Friday afternoon by mentioning his belief that the Wildcats can, and will, hoist the national championship trophy at the end of the 2023-24 season.
Perry sat down for an interview with Zach Schumaker of The SchuZ Show on Friday afternoon to discuss his thoughts surrounding the upcoming season, and when asked about expectations for his final year of eligibility, Perry stated, “I definitely see us winning a national championship.”
“I like to speak things into existence, and I’m not going to sit here and say I’m calling it or anything like that, but I definitely see us winning a national championship,” Perry said. “Being from somebody who wins, I’ve been on teams where I’ve been ‘eh’ but I truly believe this team has the personnel to do it. Just because of the grit, the talent, how deep we are, and I think we’re only going to get deeper here in the next couple weeks.”
The Kansas State point guard made headlines earlier this offseason by putting on a shooting clinic during the Wildcats’ overseas exhibition trip where Perry led his squad with 33 points in the Wildcats’ final exhibition match against UAE Select. Perry went 12-of-15 from the field (80%), including 9-of-11 (81%) from 3-point range, in just 18 minutes of action, giving the Oklahoma native such well-deserved praise.
Kansas State kicks off their quest for a national championship on November 6th in Las Vegas where Jerome Tang and company are set to take on Bronny James and USC. While the program is entering just the second year of Jerome Tang’s time at the helm, the future of K-State basketball appears to be brighter than ever in Manhattan.
