I didn't see it, so I can't agree or disagree to the "choke" charge. I do know they came through in a bunch of contests this season when they weren't expected to. K State must have played a heck of a game. Congrats to them. But it is very disappointing. I was looking forward to seeing some Volleyball later in the playoffs. I won't be watching now, though.
They were highly rated and lost a game they should have won to an unranked K-State team at home, playing with what's likely the best home court advantage in the game.
The team is young, so hopefully mental toughness is something they can work on. They seemed to crumple down the stretch.
