MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) – Marcus Foster scored 20 points, including two free throws in the closing seconds of overtime, and Kansas State held on to beat No. 7 Kansas 85-82 Monday night.
Will Spradling added 15 points for the Wildcats (17-7, 7-4 Big 12), who blew a nine point lead with less than 2 minutes left in regulation, only to survive for just their third win over the Jayhawks (18-6, 9-2) in 26 games played at Bramlage Coliseum.
Hundreds of students flooded the court when the final buzzer sounded to celebrate the end of a six game skid against Kansas. The Wildcats, who had lost 48 of the last 51 in the series, hadn’t beaten their rivals in their on campus octagon since Feb. 14, 2011.
Andrew Wiggins scored 16 points for the Jayhawks, including a putback of his own miss with 6.9 seconds left to force overtime. Perry Ellis had 19 points, Naadir Tharpe added 13 and Brannen Greene scored 10 for Kansas.
