Shady with the putback. Had to put my computer away in case the students rushed the court…
4:10 left, KSU, 67-57
Shady hits two, it’s down to 57-51. Beasley over Jackson. Too good, but Darnell responds. Five-point game. Walker with a drive past Shady. Foul issues looming for K-State. KU in the double bonus with 5:51 left. R-Rob at the line, gets both. Back to five points. No separation right now. Stew, huge, HUGE 3 with 5:25 left. Collins with an acrobatic finish, 64-57, KSU. Walker forces a 3 over Shady’s outstretched arm. Beasley 3 with 4:12 left, puts Wildcats up, 67-57. Uh-oh, KU.
7:31 left, KSU, 57-49
Walker hits a 3, going glass. It’s one of those nights for the Wildcats. Through 29 minutes, K-State has been the better team – and you probably wouldn’t get much of a debate from the few KU fans in attendance. Still, there are 11 minutes left, and this is a proud, veteran team. You still have to finish these guys off. Jake Pullen nails a 3, and K-State is up by 10. That’s right, 10. This place gets as loud as it’s been all night. Rush misses a 3, and it gets even louder. Jake penetrates, dishes to Mike for a dunk. KU is on the verge of getting run out of the gym. This place is giving me chills. It’s so loud. Chalmers at line, makes first – last time KU scored at 13:20. He makes both, it’s 57-47. Russ at line with 9:14 left, makes both. 57-49, KSU.
