The Kansas State Wildcats are holding on to a slim lead against the Kentucky Wildcats in the Sweet 16, but they won’t have Dean Wade in the second half.
Wade, a star forward for Kansas State, missed the first two games of the NCAA Tournament with a foot injury. He wasn’t in the starting lineup against Kentucky, but played a couple of minutes and scored four points in the first half.
Now, it appears he won’t be on the court for Kansas State in the second half. Bruce Weber said at halftime that Wade most likely will not play the final 20 minutes.
Bruce Weber says at halftime that we shouldn’t expect to see more of Dean Wade in the 2nd Half.
Two minutes on is good for now. Hoping to keep him under 16 minutes total.
