With the aid of a school record performance from behind the 3-point line, Kansas State (12-7, 3-4 Big 12) upset No. 12/11 Oklahoma State on Wednesday night at Bramlage Coliseum, 76-70, in overtime. The win was the first overtime win for the Wildcats since defeating No. 9/8 Texas A&M, 71-69, on Jan. 4, 2012. The win marked K-State’s 71st against a ranked opponent and the fifth against a team ranked No. 12 in the Associated Press poll.
K-State, playing with seven active players, saw four players reach double digits in scoring led by 2013 All-America candidate Brittany Chambers with a game-high 26 points, including 19 in the first half to jump start the Wildcats. With her point total, the senior from Jordan, Minn., passed Laurie Koehn (2001-05; 1,733) on the K-State career scoring list with 1,747 points.
Chambers led a K-State attack from beyond the arc that tallied a school record 16-of-41 for the night.
