player. 463. Arthur Kaluma. 24. . . Junior Wing. . Kansas State men's basketball. Arthur Kaluma

Arthur Kaluma spent the first two seasons of his college career at Creighton. Kaluma made the transfer to come to play for Jerome Tang and Kansas State after his second year. Kaluma helped lead Creighton to their first-ever Elite Eight appearance in the 2023 NCAA Tournament.

Now at Kansas State Kaluma is averaging 15.2 points per game, the second highest on the team, and 7.6 rebounds per game. In conference play, Kaluma has stepped up for the Wildcats, especially when scoring 23 points against Oklahoma State, a game Tylor Perry and Cam Carter struggled in.

Kaluma rounds out what I like to call K-State's "big three." The junior wing can bring size to the trio but also can shoot the ball like Perry and Carter. For this team to try and make it to the tournament, all three of these guys are going to have to constantly be on top of their game.
