Kansas State 85 (17-7, 7-4) (7) Kansas 82 (18-6, 9-2)

The Wildcats were up 9 with 1:53 remaining. Nino Williams blew an open court layup which probably would have iced the game. That turned into a Brannen Greene dunk. Shane Southwell turned the ball over trying to throw it off a KU defender, leading to a Greene layup. After surviving a KU miss, all State had to do was make free throws. Wesley Iwundu hit one of two then Naadire Tharpe answered with a KU jumper. Iwundu missed the front end on the next trip. Andrew Wiggins did this:

In the OT, Marcus Foster took over. Foster assisted Will Spradling on a 3 then converted an 'and 1'. Up 3 with 47 seconds left, the Wildcats once again left the door open at the line Thomas Gipson hit one of two. Tarik Black dunked, after a walk, on the ensuing KU possession. Foster went to the line to make a pair. Wiggins missed a 3, but Black grabbed the board. When Black went up for a shot, Iwundu blocked it. Spradling hit a pair of free throws to send everyone crazy. Crazier.

Marcus Foster finished with 20 on 5 of 10 shooting, 4-5 from 3, 6-7 at the line. Will Spradling had 15 points on 5-8, 3-5, 2-2, with 6 boards, 5 assists against 3 turnovers and 3 steals. For Kansas, Perry Ellis led the way with 19 on 5 of 13, 9 of 12 at the line, with 11 boards. Wiggins had 16 on 4 of 12, 8 of 15 at the stripe, and 5 boards. Naadir Tharpe had 13-10 assists.
