The two teams battled through eight ties in the final 8:28 of the game before redshirt sophomore guard Malik Newman converted on the second of two free throws to give Kansas (14-3, 4-1 Big 12) a 73-72 lead with 15 seconds remaining. Brown inbounded the ball and took a contested 3-pointer as time expired. Steals: 5 (Graham 2, Newman 2, Vick). It marked the third consecutive 20-point game for Wade against Kansas.
Jayhawk Devonte Graham hit a three point basket to give the Jayhawks a short lived 24-21 lead as the Wildcats scored the next eight to lead 29-24. However, the Wildcats were able to respond with five straight points, including a 3-pointer from sophomore Xavier Sneed and a layup from freshman Levi Stockard III, to cut the deficit to five points with 14:55 remaining.
KSU's Barry Brown Jr., answered with a 3-point play on an and-one lay-up on the Wildcats' ensuing possession to give his team back the lead. Sneed made both free throws and the Wildcats had a one point advantage. Kansas ended the half with the momentum as consecutive long balls, including one by senior Svi Mykhailiuk at the buzzer, knotted the game at 34-all at the break.
Graham led all scorers with 23 points, along with a team-high five assists. The Jayhawks had a rate of 0.214, while the Wildcats posted a mark of 0.162. Kansas now ranks 14th with 119.3 points per 100 possessions and Kansas State is 33rd (115.5).

It was unclear now how a deal might emerge, though both sides insist the clock is ticking. Some Democrats have threatened to withhold support unless an immigration pact is forged.
The last time the Wildcats played, they beat the Oklahoma State Cowboys, 86-82. That gave Kansas State the last shot, but Barry Brown's rushed 3-pointer from well beyond the arc was no good. Team Rebounds: 2. Blocked Shots: 3 (Mawien 2, Wade).
27 - K-State held a slight 27-25 edge in rebounding, marking just the seventh time this season better than an opponent on the boards and the second time in Big 12 play. On the strength of 9 offensive rebounds, the Wildcats were able to score 13 second-chance points, the most since scoring 18 in the win at Iowa State on December 29. Kansas leads the overall series with West Virginia, 7-4; however, the Jayhawks have lost in each of their last four trips to Morgantown and are 1-4 in the WVU Coliseum. The Jayhawks have now won 46 of the last 51 meetings in the Big 12 era, including 21 of 22 games played at Allen Fieldhouse...
It was a game eerily familiar to the game a year ago here in Lawrence.
Kansas also got 11 points from Mykhailiuk and 10 from Vick, and that balanced scoring was important as the Jayhawks played with essentially a six-man rotation. The 90.9 percent clip from the free throw line was the second highest this season and the second time shooting 90 percent or better from the line.
CDC warns of severe flu season
Though Chen says this year's flu shot is weaker than in years past, but says that shouldn't mean a person doesn't get it. Flu symptoms can include fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue.
Freshman Cartier Diarra provided most of the offense down the stretch and got K-State back into the game. A movie that K-State had seen before if you will. The 13 second-chance points were the fifth-highest total this season.
K-State had four players score in double figures for the sixth game this season, including consecutive games for the first time since the first two games of the season.
Junior Dean Wade scored a team-high 22 points on 8-of-14 field goals, including 2-of-4 from 3-point range... They combined for all the Jayhawks' points during a 15-2 run that turned a 36-34 deficit into a 49-38 lead with about 13 minutes left in the game. Mykhailiuk and Vick rounded out the Jayhawks to score in double figures, with Mykhailiuk finding all of his 11 points in the first half, while Vick saw eight of his 10 points come in the final 10 minutes of game action.
