Guard play key in Kansas State vs. Missouri men's basketball game

Wildcats coach Frank Martin said he has developed an unorthodox method to deal with the suffocating traps and presses the Tigers employ. Whenever a player is in an uncomfortable position and about to give up a steal, Martin has advised them to toss the ball as far into the stands as possible. The strategy doesn't seem odd if you consider that last season, Missouri forced Kansas State to turn over the ball 21 times, including 13 steals. The turnovers proved to be the deciding factor in its 94-74-blowout victory at home.
