Field of 68 Calls Sunflower Showdown Game: ‘One Game to Be At’ in 2024-25

Kansas senior forward David N'Guessan (1) reacts alongside graduate senior guard Tylor Perry (2) after gaining a lead in the second half of the Sunflower Showdown inside Bramlage Coliseum Monday, February 5, 2024.

Following the commitment of Illinois transfer Coleman Hawkins to Kansas State, the Field of 68 Podcast posted a video on social media discussing the addition to Jerome Tang’s roster.

With Hawkins being an elite trash-talker and social media presence in college basketball, Jeff Goodman and Rob Dauster highlighted their excitement level surrounding the 2024-25 Sunflower Showdown matchup between Hawkins and Kansas‘ Hunter Dickinson.


“I will also say, and it’s the elephant in the room,” Dauster said. “I think the one game that I want to be at this year is Coach Cal returning to Lexington, right? I think not all that far behind is Coleman Hawkins and Kansas State facing off against Hunter Dickinson and Kansas.”

Dauster and Goodman highlighted the elite level of back-and-forth trash talk between Hawkins and Dickinson and mentioned that the matchup between Kansas and Kansas State is going to be must-see TV in both Manhattan and Lawrence.

Hawkins became a massive addition for the Wildcats on Friday, filling out the 13th and final scholarship for Jerome Tang’s 2024-25 roster. The senior forward spent the previous four seasons with Brad Underwood at Illinois and will now head to the Big 12 Conference for his final season of eligibility.
