Kansas State Foot-blocks Their Way To Upset

The Kansas State Huckstables utilized four foot-blocks on the mark to upset the number one seed Washington University Contra 11-7 in Pool-B at the Ozark Conference Tournament on Saturday.

The game was a back and forth affair for much of the first half. The two teams traded points until Kansas State was finally able to get some separation from Washington University by getting a foot block. That turn allowed them to go up a break, 5-3, which they held onto until half at 6-4.

After half, Contra scored the first two points to tie the game at sixes, but the Huckstables answered with a four point run brought on by another foot-block to make it 10-6. The teams traded points to finish the game.

“Our team played really well,” said team captain Cameron Hunter. “Our offense played well and our defense really stepped up in the second half.”

In addition to the four foot-blocks, the Kansas State defense recorded three other forced turns.
