Kansas State Wildcats Lose A Good Player In Angel Rodriguez
On the season, he averaged 11.4 points per game and 5.2 assists per game. Any time you lose a player with this kind of production, it really hurts a team. This will especially be the case for Kansas State, since Rodriguez was second on the team in scoring and first on the team in assists.
Bruce Weber may have been great in his first season coaching the team, but we will really have to see some coaching from him for this team to be successful next season.
Unfortunately, Rodriguez’s last game in a Wildcats uniform was in the 2013 NCAA Tournament, where he only scored two points against La Salle. Not to mention, his last two games with the team ended in a loss. Kansas State entered the Big Dance as a No. 4 seed, but lost its first game of the tourney.
Rodriguez is clearly a huge loss for this team, but Weber is going to have to find a way to replace him. It will be interesting to see if the Wildcats will compete in the conference yet again next season. However, another regular season title is looking more and more unlikely.
As good as the season was for this team, this news and an early exit in the dance has to put a damper on the year.
