COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) -Kansas State coach Frank Martin has apologized for popping senior Chris Merriewether on the arm with the back of his hand during a game against Missouri.
Martin flipped his hand at Merriewether in the closing minutes of the No. 11 Wildcats' 74-68 loss Saturday while chastising the senior for a turnover. A few fans on Kansas State's end of the floor noticed the contact and Martin flipped his hand again seconds later, apparently trying to high-five Merriewether as he continued to scream.
Martin immediately apologized for hitting Merriewether at his postgame news conference, saying he had lost his composure and his actions had no place in the game.
Merriewether called the swipe no big deal.
