Kansas State men's basketball coach Frank Martin apparently believes in a robust hot-hand phenomenon -- that when a good shooter is on target early in the game, his or her success on future shots is virtually assured. According to this article, after Texas Tech's Alan Voskuil (now shooting .544 for the season on three-point attempts) went 5-for-6 from behind the arc in the Red Raiders' upset win over the Wildcats Wednesday night, Martin said the following:

"Like all good shooters, when you give him open looks they find the rim," he said. "And once you let a good shooter find the rim, it's over. I don't care how hard you guard him after that, every time he lets it go it's going in."
