     MANHATTAN (AP) — Kansas State forward Curtis Kelly will miss four more games after committing a secondary NCAA violation while buying clothes at a Manhattan department store.
Athletics Director John Currie announced Tuesday that the NCAA accepted Kansas State’s recommendation that Kelly sit out six games and repay the value of the benefit he received to a charity. Kelly already sat out two games last week.
Kelly, who is averaging 10.3 points and four rebounds, will be eligible to play again against Texas Tech on Jan. 15.
Kelly and senior guard Jacob Pullen were declared ineligible last week for accepting impermissible benefits. Pullen sat out two games of a three-game suspension and will miss the Wildcats’ game against North Florida on Friday. He will be eligible to return against Savannah State on Monday.

Three Chiefs chosen
for upcoming Pro Bowl
     KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Wide receiver Dwayne Bowe, running back Jamaal Charles and guard Brian Waters have been chosen from the Kansas City Chiefs for the Jan. 30 Pro Bowl in Hawaii.
It’s a major change from last year, when the Chiefs did not have a single player selected in their 4-12 season.
This will be the first Pro Bowl for Bowe and Charles and the fifth for Waters, who was also chosen in 2004, ‘05, ‘06 and ‘08.
Charles ranks second in the NFL with 1,380 yards rushing and first with a per-carry average of 6.39 yards. He’s caught 43 passes for 455 yards and three TDs this year, and his career average of 6.04 yards is the best in league history for anyone with a minimum of 300 attempts.
     Bowe set a Chiefs record this year with at least one touchdown catch in seven straight games and leads the NFL with a team-record 15 touchdown catches.
