MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) - An earlier start to practice sounded just fine to Kansas State coach Bruce Weber.
The Wildcats, who won a share of the Big 12 title last season, have to replace their top two scorers in graduated senior Rodney McGruder and point guard Angel Rodriguez, who transferred this past offseason to Miami. So it's safe to say that Weber will take every minute he can get.
In the past, practice began roughly four weeks before the season. Now, men's basketball teams get to conduct 30 days of practice in the six weeks prior to their first regular-season game.
Weber hopes he's able to ease the duration of the practice schedule prior to the season in order to keep his players fresh.
