MANHATTAN, Kan. (WIBW) - Coming off of 10-straight losses, the Wildcats fell just short to No. 13 Texas Tuesday night, 80-77.

Down three with seconds left, a Mike McGuirl half-court heave hit the back of the rim and bounced out to seal K-State’s fate.

The Wildcats rallied back from a 17-point second half deficit to bring the game within one with less than a minute remaining, but couldn’t get over the hump as Texas hit free throws down the stretch.

K-State returns to play Saturday at No. 23 Oklahoma State.
