Manhattan, KS (SportsNetwork.com) - The Kansas State Wildcats shoot for their sixth win in the last seven games, as they entertain the 17th-ranked West Virginia Mountaineers in a Big 12 Conference clash at Bramlage Coliseum on Tuesday night. West Virginia claimed victory in 14 of its first 15 games to open the 2014-15 campaign, but the team has split the last four to fall to 4-2 in conference. The Mountaineers had to go to overtime in last Saturdays bout with visiting TCU, but managed to slip by in an 86-85 final. As a result, WVU improved to 7-2 at home this season -- the two setbacks coming against LSU (74-73) and Iowa State (74-72). Kansas State knocked off Oklahoma State at home on Saturday, 63-53, as it rebounded from a 77-71 loss at nationally-ranked Iowa State four days earlier. For their efforts, the Wildcats enter this evenings fray at 12-8 overall and 5-2 in conference, and while the team is just 1-4 in true road games, it is 10-2 in front of the hometown faithful, with victories coming for K-State in each of its last four tilts inside Bramlage Coliseum. K-State owns a 4-2 lead in the all-time series with WVU, including a 2-0 mark in Manhattan. The Mountaineers won the most recent encounter though, taking an 81-71 decision in at home last February. West Virginia needed a pair of free throws from Jevan Carter in the final second to push its way past TCU in overtime on Saturday. The Mountaineers got double-double performances from Juwan Staten (18 points, 12 assists) and Devin Williams (18 points, 12 rebounds), 15 points and eight boards from Jonathan Holton, and 10 points and three steals from Daxter Miles, Jr. in what wound up being a nip-and-tuck battle throughout. WVU shot 40.8 percent from the floor, 24 percent from 3-point range, and turned in a 22-of-32 showing at the foul line, while the Horned Frogs finished with percentages of .491 overall, .429 from distance, and .636 at the charity stripe. TCU won the rebounding battle (47-37), but committed 19 turnovers. Staten is averaging a team-best 15.2 ppg, and he also serves as WVUs primary playmaker with 80 assists. Williams is netting 11.2 ppg while also spearheading the Mountaineers rebounding effort with 7.9 rpg, and there are five others who net between 6.4 and 9.9 ppg for a squad that produces 77.7 ppg, despite shooting knocking down only 41.7 percent of its field goal attempts and 29.9 percent of its long-range launches. The teams defensive allowance stands at 64.2 ppg, but it has been its ability to force turnovers that has WVU in the favorable position it is as foes are guilty of a whopping 21.9 miscues per outing, its +9.9 turnover margin ranking it first in the country. Nino Williams scored 20 points, his second straight game with at least that many, as he helped power Kansas State to its recent win over Oklahoma State. Williams went 10-of-13 from the floor, the team as a whole dropping 57.1 percent of its total shots, while at the same limiting the Cowboys to 43.2 percent field goal efficiency, which included a dismal 3-of-14 effort from 3- point range. The Wildcats didnt perform any better from distance (2-of-8), but went 13-of-16 at the foul line, narrowly won the rebounding battle (23-19), and made a 10-point halftime lead stand up. Marcus Foster and Justin Edwards both reached double figures as well for K-State, netting 14 points apiece, with the former also dishing out five of the teams 16 assists. Kansas State is far from an offensive juggernaut, as the team averages just 65.7 ppg despite shooting a solid 46.1 percent from the floor. Fortunately, the Wildcats perform well at the defensive end most nights, yielding just 62.7 ppg while forcing an average of 13.3 turnovers per outing. KSU is in the black with regard to rebounding margin (+2.8), but on the negative side of the ledger in turnovers (-0.4). Foster (13.7 ppg) leads three players in double figures, with Williams (12.0 ppg) and Thomas Gipson (11.2 ppg) being the others. Nike Basketball Shoes For Sale .

Ted Ligety, Mikaela Shiffrin, Bode Miller and Tim Jitloff underlined the squads enormous potential on the Rettenbach glacier in Austria.NEW YORK -- Baseball players and management hope to reach a new drug agreement this week that would increase initial penalties for muscle-building steroids and allow a decrease of suspensions for some positive tests caused by unintentional use, people familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press. For future suspensions, the deal also would eliminate the loophole allowing Alex Rodriguez to earn almost $3 million during his season-long ban, the people said. They spoke on condition of anonymity in recent days because talks are ongoing. The sides hope to reach an agreement by Sunday, when the Los Angeles Dodgers open the U.S. portion of the major league schedule at the San Diego Padres. While the lengths have not been finalized, a person involved with the talks said Wednesday the most likely penalties would be about 80 games for an initial testing violation and a season-long ban for a second. "It will be a significant deterrent because players will know theyre not going to just easily walk back into a lineup," Travis Tygart, chief executive officer of the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, said in a telephone interview. "It probably is the best policy in professional sports." For use of a limited group of substances, the sides were discussing giving the arbitration panel that hears appeals grievances the authority to reduce suspensions by as much as 50 per cent if the player proves the positive test was caused by unintentional use, the person said. "What were all here for it to rid sports of the intentional cheats, those who are intending to defraud both the fans and their fellow teammates, the integrity of competition," Tygart said. "You want to have provisions in place that allow for whether theres an inadvertent or a truly non-intentional situation which may arise." Since the 2006 season, the Major League Baseballs drug agreement has called for a 50-game suspension for a first positive steroids test, a 100-game ban for a second and a lifetime penalty for a third. Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig called for tougher penalties last March, and then-union head Michael Weiner said players would consider them for 2014. Weiner died in November and was succeeded by former All-Star Tony Clark, who has led the negotiations. Major League Baseballs investigation of the Biogenesis of Amerrica anti-aging clinic led to 14 suspensions last summer, including a 65-game penalty for former NL MVP Ryan Braun of Milwaukee and a 211-game ban for Rodriguez, which was reduced to 162 games in January by an arbitrator.dddddddddddd The section covering violations not related to positive tests, which was used by Selig in the Biogenesis case, will be clarified but still will allow discipline for "just cause." Many players have advocated stiffer penalties as a deterrent. Arizona pitcher Brad Ziegler spoke out after Jhonny Peralta, who served a 50-game suspension, agreed in November to a $53 million, four-year contract with St. Louis. "We thought 50 games would be a deterrent. Obviously its not. So we are working on it again," he tweeted then. "It pays to cheat... Thanks, owners, for encouraging PED use." Some players said suspensions should lead to larger monetary losses. San Diego Padres outfielder Will Venable maintained last summer "somehow having to forfeit or void your contract that youre under is something that needs to be the main focus of the penalties." But for the majority of players, that would go too far. "Id venture to guess that even though there are concerns on a number of levels, that we will never end up in a world where player contracts are voided as a result," Clark told the AP during a January interview. Addressing positives caused by inadvertent use was a factor in the talks. Philadelphia infielder Freddy Galvis was suspended for 50 games in June 2012 for a Clostebol Metabolite, which he later claimed was contained in a foot cream he used. Reliever Guillermo Mota, then with San Francisco, was suspended for 100 games in May 2012 after taking a cough syrup with Clenbuterol. The new deal also will state that a player receives none of his salary during a season-long suspension. The current deal said a player loses as many days pay as games he is suspended. Since players are paid over a 183-day season this year, arbitrator Fredric Horowitz ruled Rodriguez was entitled to 21-183rds of his $25 million salary, or $2,868,852. "Thats fantastic," Tygart said. "You hit them in the pocketbook, and thats really where the cheaters are most deterred from attempting to steal money from the other players." ' ' '
