The Kansas State Wildcats showed once again who owns the state of Kansas and last night it was not the Jayhawks. Jerome Tang moved to 11-0 in overtime games in his career as a head coach, two of those wins against Kansas when they were ranked in the top five. The Wildcats took down the Jayhawks 75-70 in a crazy back-and-forth battle.
After losing four games in a row, the Wildcats were not favored to win this one, even playing at home. K-State was down by just two points at halftime, but coming out of the half, the Jayhawks jumped to an 11-point lead. The Wildcats chipped away at the lead, taking the lead themselves a few times. There were 12 lead changes in this game and 15 ties.
Tylor Perry scored a season-high 26 points and was the leading scorer for the Wildcats. Perry also led the team going 8-9 from the line, including two free throws to ice the game in overtime.
