K-State’s already rough week has gotten worse.
Jacob Pullen and Curtis Kelly were held out of Tuesday’s game against UNLV. Pullen’s suspension is for three games. The length of Kelly’s suspension is still being determined. According to Kansas State, both men received free merchandise at a clothing store, which of course is against NCAA rules.
No. 11 Kansas State has struggled to find its offense recently, especially in a horrendous shooting performance this past weekend against Florida. The Wildcats lost 57-44.
Fortunately for K-State, the Wildcats should have three easy wins after UNLV (UM-Kansas City, North Florida and Savannah State). Pullen would be allowed to return for the Savannah State game. They open Big 12 play January 8 against Oklahoma State in Stillwater.
Pullen has been K-State’s offensive leader this season since the departure of Denis Clemente at guard.
