K-State basketball coach Frank Martin has knee surgery; Jacob Pullen’s hand OK

March 2, 2011


— Kansas State coach Frank Martin underwent successful arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Tuesday and was resting comfortably.

The school disclosed the surgery in a news release a day after the Wildcats beat No. 8 Texas on the road. Kansas State also said senior guard Jacob Pullen suffered only a bruised right hand in the win over the Longhorns.

Pullen, a candidate for Big 12 player of the year, injured the hand when he fell to the floor late in the game.

Martin had torn cartilage repaired in his knee. The school said he expected to be at practice on Wednesday and on the sideline Saturday when the Wildcats, the hottest team in the Big 12, close out their regular season at home against Iowa State.
