The Drive ep. 20, January 14, 2018

By  | 

TOPEKA, Kan. (THE DRIVE) Kansas has now beat K-State six times in a row, with three of those wins only being by 3 points or less. Last it was the notorious 4-step travel by Svi. This year Barry Brown walked down the court with 15 seconds left and didn't get a pass off to Dean Wade as planned and shot himself at the buzzer, just hitting rim.

Xavier Sneed gave the Wildcats the lead with 30.2 seconds left when he made two free throws, but Newman got to the line at the other end and the 86-percent foul shooter converted both.

Dean Wade had 22 points to lead the Wildcats. Cartier Diarra, the Freshman in for injured Stokes added a career-high 18.

KU had two different times where they pulled ahead by a big margin. Once at the start leading 14-3 and once at the start of the second half leading 49-38. K-State was able to come back from both deficits but ultimately could not hold onto the lead.

Silvio De Sousa did get cleared to play, but only was in the game for four minutes and did not have a big impact on the game.

Kansas has had a couple of close calls but remains tied at the top of the Big 12. KU will face West Virginia on Monday night.

Kansas State will go up against Trae Young and the rest of the Oklahoma Sooners.
