  • Wally Judge: no longer a Wildcat.

For the second time in January, a Kansas State basketball player quit the team. The latest, Wally Judge, probably wasn't a surprise, but the attrition has to be concerning for Wildcat fans.

K-State coach Frank Martin announced the sophomore's exit at his Monday presser, according to KU Sports. Martin said Judge was unhappy, which has to be a common theme in Manhattan.

"I kind of saw it coming with some of his emotional situations," Martin

told reporters. "He just has not been enjoying it. He told me today that

he thinks it's time for a change."



Who would have guessed that getting yelled at all the time would get old? Add that to the disappointing season that the Wildcats are experiencing (picked No. 3 in the preseason, and now with an overall record of 14-8 and 2-5 in Big 12 play), and Judge probably isn't the only one who's fed up with things in Manhattan.

Judge missed five games for personal or disciplinary reasons this

season. He played in 17 games, averaging 5.5 points and 3.8 rebounds in

15.2 minutes. Yahoo Sports college basketball blog, The Dagger, points

out that Judge was a McDonald's All-American, ranked as the No. 18 prospect in the 2009 class by recruiting site Rivals.

JUCO transfer Freddy Asprilla also quit the team in January. Wildcat fans, how hot is Frank Martin's seat getting?
