K-State Slate: 2.15.15 - OMG, we won?!

Kansas State beats Oklahoma, and stranger things have almost never happened.

So that happened! Kansas State beat #17 Oklahoma 59-56 to end a troubling losing streak.

Clutch free throw shooting from Wesley Iwundu and Thomas Gipson helped propel Kansas State to an unexpected win over #17 Oklahoma. (John Zetmeir, Topeka Capital-Journal). Ultimately though, as Marcus Foster goes, so go the Wildcats. His three-point shot as the clock ticked down sealed the win for Kansas State, and his 14 points made a huge difference to a team desperate for a win. (Ken Corbitt, Capital-Journal)

TheBigE's review of the game is here: Kansas State 59, Oklahoma 56.

Kansas State will try to win its 14th home game of the season for the first time in a decade when the team takes on Texas Tech later today (1 PM) in Bramlage. The game will be on your FoxSports affiliate as well as on KStateSports radio. Look for Breanna Lewis and Ashia Woods to star in the game. These two combined for 49 points of 20-of-29 shooting in the last game against Texas Tech.

The weekend began well enough for the baseball team, as they blanked Pittsburgh 7-0 with Levi MaVorhis striking out three in six innings to help the Wildcats to their first shutout of the season. But the BatCats could not sustain that success and were later shut out by George Mason 5-0, taking advantage of Wildcats pitcher Mark Biesma starting only his first game in purple.

The tennis team put an exclamation point on a successful weekend by blanking Emporia State 7-0, which came on the heels of a 4-0 rout of UMKC.

Up next, the netters will head to Las Vegas next weekend to take on UNLV and Colorado State.

The track team's impressive run continued at the Tyson Invitational in Fayetteville. On the final day, freshman Christoff Bryan took first in the high jump in an upset victory over top-ranked jumpers from Texas Tech, Auburn and Nebraska. Bryan's winning jump of 2.28m ties him for the top jump in Division I, and was the best performance by a Wildcat since Erik Kynard's school record-setting 2.33m mark.

In the women's non-invitational high jump event, Kim Williamson finished first with a jump of 1.85 m. She was the only one in a field of 20 to clear a mark of six feet.

Meanwhile, the women's 4x400 team (Sonia Gaskin, Tia' Gamble, A'keyla Mitchell, Erica Twiss) set a new school record in the event and for the second time this season. The team finished fifth overall.
