A year ago, only the biggest college basketball diehards knew who Jerome Tang was. But, he is quickly becoming a household name in the sport.

Tang was a longtime assistant coach at Baylor under Scott Drew starting in 2003 and saw that program grow from a murder scandal to national champions in 2021.

And, that landed him the head coaching job at Kansas State, replacing Bruce Weber, following the 2022 season. And, he’s instantly led the Wildcats back to the top of college basketball. Kansas State went 23-8 in the regular season, before a first round exit in the Big 12 tournament. But, they earned a 3-seed in the NCAA Tournament, and beat Montana State by 12, 77-65, in the first round on Friday.

And, on Sunday, they took on the blue-blood Kentucky Wildcats for a trip to the sweet 16.

And, the purple ‘cats in this matchup of Wildcats, executed a perfect call by Jerome Tang to get an alley-oop to go up three at the end of the first half.

And, thanks to strong play by Kansas State guard Markquis Nowell, Jerome Tang is headed to the Sweet 16.

After the game, Tang was pretty hype.

And, after the game, Jerome Tang made it clear he does not care at all about Kentucky’s tradition.

I can’t say I disagree. Kansas State will take on Michigan State in the Sweet Sixteen next week.
