NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – Marcus Foster’s floater forced overtime, then he drained a 3-pointer with 4 seconds left in the extra period for the game winner as Kansas State beat No. 16 Oklahoma 66-63 on Saturday night.

Stephen Hurt scored a season-high 15 points, Foster scored 14 and Thomas Gipson added 10 for the Wildcats (9-7, 2-1 Big 12).

Buddy Hield scored a career-high 31 points for Oklahoma (11-4, 2-1). He made a layup with 28 seconds remaining in overtime to tie the score before Foster’s shot. TaShawn Thomas had 14 points and 11 rebounds and Ryan Spangler had nine points and nine rebounds for the Sooners, who were coming off back-to-back double-digit wins over ranked opponents Baylor and Texas.

Kansas State held Oklahoma to 40 percent shooting. Hield made 11 of 20 shots for the Sooners, but the rest of the team made just 12 of 37.
