Foster’s late three leads K-State past No. 17 Oklahoma

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) – Marcus Foster made a tiebreaking 3-pointer with 3.4 seconds left and scored 14 points in his return from a three-game suspension to lead Kansas State past No. 17 Oklahoma 59-56 on Saturday night.

It was the second time this season that Foster hit a late 3 against the Sooners (17-8, 8-5 Big 12).

Buddy Hield had 14 points to pace Oklahoma but was held to his lowest point total since Jan. 5 against Baylor.

The Sooners matched their scoring low for the season set in a 69-56 loss to Wisconsin in the Bahamas.

Oklahoma coach Lon Kruger, a former Kansas State All-American, fell to 5-7 against his alma mater.

Kansas State (13-13, 6-7) established its late lead with only three field goals in the final 9 minutes. Free throw shooting was crucial as the Wildcats went 8 for 10 down the stretch and finished 28 of 36 for the game.
