Balanced effort pushes Kansas past feisty K-State; 3 things we learned

"That just translates to a real game".

The Kansas State Wildcats are averaging 76.6 points on 48.1 percent shooting and allowing 65.9 points on 41.3 percent shooting.

Whatever happened with calls that upset Weber, it doesn't change the fact that in the final two possessions, Self's players did as instructed and one of Weber's did not.

As the clock reached four seconds, Jayhawks center Udoka Azubuike raced from the free throw line out to the perimeter to guard Wade.

Especially against Kansas 13-3 (3-1) who is still the favorites to win the Big 12 until the team is officially knocked off. After Malik Newman converted on jumper, Brown gave K-State a lead at 70-69 on a 3-point play with 1:52 remaining. "You've just got to move on and make the most of the rest of the season". Guard Barry Brown is coming off a career-high 38-point game against Oklahoma State, and he is leading Kansas State with an average of 16.9 points per game.

"Pretty frustrated, pretty disappointed", Wade said after leading all scorers with 22 points.

That doesn't reflect well on a coach who did so many things right to keep his team in the game until the final possession, especially a coach who lost his IL job in part because the rap against him was he didn't win close games and hasn't done a lot to squash that rap five-and-a-half seasons into his Kansas State tenure.

That's when Azubuike and Graham went to work.

Kansas (14-3, 4-1) maintained their share of second place in the Big 12 with the victory behind West Virginia.

The Wildcats rank 113th in three pointers allowed per game (21.5) while the Jayhawks rank 232nd (25.4).

Diarra clawed the Wildcats back once more, at one point scoring 11 straight for them, and the game was tied at 64 at the under-4 media timeout to set up a frantic race to the finish. "He's going to be fine, but it's not fair to expect too much". "Just a tough loss", Brown said. If you go back in time, those are two pretty good, heated rivalries that were pretty similar. We have got a lot more big games to play.

Kansas State coach Bruce Weber took umbrage with Diarra's late technical for trash-talking, and he said several other calls were questionable. "I didn't want to wait that long". Not even with the NCAA clearing highly-touted freshman Silvio De Sousa for competition.

De Sousa played 4 minutes, yet the Jayhawks were minus-8 while he was on the floor.

Stokes, who missed the OSU game after suffering an injury last weekend, has the kind of experience, savvy and moxie required to come into Allen Fieldhouse and win.

K-State had four players score in double figures for the sixth game this season, including consecutive games for the first time since the first two games of the season.

The Kansas State Wildcats will play the Kansas Jayhawks in one of the college football games on Saturday, start time at 12:00 PM ET, at Allen Fieldhouse, Lawrence, Kansas.Kansas State vs Kansas tv channel is on ESPN.

Kansas State has lost nail-biters in its last two trips to the Phog.

Kansas also got 11 points from Mykhailiuk and 10 from Vick, and that balanced scoring was important as the Jayhawks played with essentially a six-man rotation.

His most crucial shot came as the clock neared three minutes.

K-State scored 13 second-chance points off of 9 offensive rebounds, which marked the 11th time with double-digit second-chance points...
