MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) – Marcus Foster hit four 3 pointers and finished with 25 points, helping Kansas State rebound from a rare season opening loss to beat Oral Roberts 71-63 Wednesday night.
D.J. Johnson added 12 points and Will Spradling 10 for the Wildcats (1-1), who lost their first home opener in two decades to Northern Colorado. That defeat also ended the defending Big 12 champions’ 47 game winning streak against non conference opponents at Bramlage Coliseum.
Kansas State struggled early on against the Golden Eagles (1-1) but finally found its rhythm early in the second half, and then made enough plays in the closing minutes to put them away.
Obi Emegano, a transfer from Western Illinois, scored 24 points to lead Oral Roberts. Utah transfer Shawn Glover scored 15 of his 21 points in the second half.
