Dennis Clemente, Kansas State guard, after the Wildcat's 85-74 loss to Kansas on Saturday, said, "This is my house. I'll punch you back...I have my respect."
This, of course, came as a result of Clemente's skirmish with KU's Brady Morningstar. Clemente claimed that Morningstar elbowed him, thus the retaliation. Network replays on ABC yesterday didn't pick up on any Morningstar elbow--only Clemente's elbowing of Morningstar in the back. The incident was followed by two Kansas made free throws and 3-pointers by Tyrell Reed and Sherron Collins, pushing a close two-point game out to a 10-point Kansas lead.
The loss by Kansas State pushed this rivalry to 176-90 all-time in favor of Kansas. Of course, the Jayhawks have only lost twice in the past 40 games between the two schools.
Hard to call that a rivalry...
