Kansas State picked up their 4th win against a top 25 opponent on Saturday as the Wildcats cruised to an impressive 17 point victory over the 15th ranked Texas Longhorns. It was a major team victory as the Wildcats shared the ball well and did not turn it over often (until the end of the game, when the game was well in hand). But the major factor for this game was freshman SG Marcus Foster.

In fact, senior point guard Will Spradling was the first Kansas City area recruit to earn a scholarship to the team since 2002. But Spradling is used to being rare and special. It is not often that you find a four-year starting point guard at a 6A high school.
