KSU reels off third-straight win by fending off Texas Tech
MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Marcus Foster scored 14 points, Wesley Iwundu added 10 and Kansas State held on down the stretch to beat Texas Tech 58-51 on Wednesday night for the Wildcats’ third straight win.
Kansas State (10-7, 3-1 Big 12) led just 49-46 with 3 minutes to go, but a couple of fouls and a costly turnover by the Red Raiders’ Robert Turner allowed the Wildcats to pull away.
Thomas Gipson scored a tough bucket in the paint, and then after the turnover, Justin Edwards curled in a layup on the run-out. Jevon Thomas added two foul shots for a 54-46 advantage.
Turner, who had a game-high 16 points for Texas Tech (10-7, 0-4), knocked down a 3-pointer with 53 seconds left, but he missed another moments later that could have made it 54-52.
