Bruce Weber Angrily Spiked His Clipboard During Timeout

Kansas State's Bruce Weber slams his clipboard during a timeout.

Bruce Weber is not happy with Kansas State's effort today. The Wildcats are currently getting blown out by upstart 11-seed Loyola Chicago.

The Wildcats are one game away from the Final Four after beating Kentucky on Thursday night. Unfortunately for K-State fans, they ran into a buzzsaw.

Loyola is shooting over 64-percent from the field, and 57-percent from three. It is holding Kansas State to 35.7-percent on field goals and just 3-of-14 three pointers.

During a recent timeout, with Kansas State trailing by around 20, Bruce Weber spiked his clipboard in disgust.

That is a coach who just doesn't have answers today. Loyola is basically running a perfect offense, and shutting down Kansas State the same way it has done Miami, Tennessee, and Nevada in this tournament.

The Hurricanes and Volunteers only managed 62 points a piece. Nevada, one of the nation's best offenses, "broke through" for 68.

The main difference has been Loyola's offense. The Ramblers have been fairly efficient all tournament.

Tonight, the team is just straight shooting the lights out. Loyola has 62 points on just 42 shots from the field.

Loyola is getting a huge lift from guard Ben Richardson, who has 18 points to lead all scorers. He averages 6.4 points per game, and had 14 points during the NCAA Tournament entering today's game.

Assuming the Ramblers hold on to what is currently a 61-40 lead, they will face the winner of tonight's West Region final in next weekend's Final Four. No. 3 Michigan faces No. 9 Florida State in Los Angeles to determine that Final Four berth.
