MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) – Kenny Chery had 10 of Baylor’s 17 consecutive made free throws down the stretch, finishing with a career-high 29 points and leading the Bears to a 76-74 victory over Kansas State on Saturday.
Cory Jefferson added 16 points for the Bears (21-10, 9-9 Big 12), who erased a 12-point second-half deficit to win for the seventh time in their last eight games. They also beat the Wildcats (20-11, 10-8) twice in the same season for the first time in school history.
Kansas State had the ball with three-tenths of a second left, but Will Spradling’s full-court inbound pass was picked off by Jefferson, allowing time to run out.
Marcus Foster scored 29 points and Thomas Gipson added 16 for the Wildcats, who had their school-record 15-game winning streak at Bramlage Coliseum come to an end.
