Texas has dropped four straight heading into Saturday’s Big 12 clash with Kansas State.

The Longhorns will enter the game without the services of Jonathan Holmes, the team’s second leading scorer and rebounder, who will not travel with the team due to a concussion, according to Brian Davis of the Austin American-Statesman. Holmes took a shot to the head early in the second half against Oklahoma State on Wednesday night.

While Holmes will remain in Austin, reserve guard Javan Felix, who is also recovering from a concussion, made the trip to Manhattan, but is questionable at the moment, Davis reported.

Holmes is averaging 11.5 points and 6.4 rebounds per game for struggling Texas, which has fallen to 3-6 in the conference standings. The Longhorns will be taking another another slumping Big 12 program in K-State, which has dropped four of its last five following a hot start to league play.

The Wildcats suspended leading scorer Marcus Foster and freshman Malek Harris on Wednesday night for violation of team rules.
