KSU holds Nebraska-Omaha to season-low score in 84-66 win
MANHATTAN, Kansas (AP) — Nino Williams had 19 points and Marcus Foster added 16 points as Kansas State beat Nebraska-Omaha 84-66 in the first-ever meeting between the two schools on Tuesday night.
It is already the fourth 80-point game for the Wildcats (4-3). They only surpassed the mark twice during the 2013-14 season.
C.J. Carter had 22 points to pace the Mavericks, who were held to their lowest score of the season.
Nebraska-Omaha (3-3) overcame two nine-point leads just after halftime, but 10 points from Foster in the first eight minutes of the second half never allowed the Mavericks to close within six points through the remainder of the game.
A 3-point play from Marcus Tyus closed Kansas State’s lead to 56-48 with 11:19 left, but Williams scored nine of Kansas State’s next 13 points to open a 69-50 lead.
