MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) - The difference between Kansas State coach Bruce Weber and his predecessor, Frank Martin, was evident during the first few practices over the summer.
Weber was starting to implement the very basics of his motion offense, a markedly different system than what Martin had used so successfully, and it was absolute chaos.
At first, Will Spradling braced himself for an earful after every miscue. After a while, the guard began to realize that the demeanor of his new coach was much more player-friendly.
That approach is a big reason why Weber has managed to hold together a team that won 22 games last season after Martin left for South Carolina, and that experience is a big reason why the Wildcats are expected to contend in the Big 12 this season.
