Big 12 hoops roundup: K-State nosedive continues with loss to Texas A&M


No. 11 Texas A&M; 64, Kansas State 56

College Station, Texas — Khris Middleton had 18 points, and Texas A&M; made 13 free throws in the last two minutes to hold on for a victory over struggling Kansas State on Saturday.

Texas A&M; (17-2, 4-1 Big 12) led by five before Will Spradling knocked down a three-pointer that made it 55-53 with about a minute remaining. B.J. Holmes made a pair of free throws with 45 seconds left before Jacob Pullen’s shot was blocked by David Loubeau on the other end, and the Wildcats had to foul again.

Dash Harris made one of two shots to push the lead to 58-53, and the Aggies got the rebound on the miss. Middleton hit six free throws after that to secure the win.

It was the fourth loss in five games for Kansas State (13-7, 1-4), which was led by Pullen’s 21 points.

No. 13 Missouri 87, Iowa State 54

Columbia, Mo. — Ricardo Ratliffe matched his career best with six blocked shots, and Michael Dixon had 15 points with three three-pointers, helping Missouri run Iowa State out of the gym.

Texas Tech 72, Nebraska 71

Lubbock, Texas — D’walyn Roberts tipped in a rebound with 3.8 seconds left to give Texas Tech a victory over Nebraska.

Oklahoma 67, Colorado 60

Norman, Okla. — Cade Davis had 15 points to lead Oklahoma over Colorado.

Baylor 76, Oklahoma State 57

Waco, Texas — Freshman sensation Perry Jones scored 24 points, LaceDarius Dunn had 16, and Baylor took control with a strange sequence at the end of the first half in a victory over Oklahoma State.

The Bears went ahead to stay by ending the first half with a 13-3 run that included a missed three-pointer that hit nothing but the floor followed by an alley-oop dunk on the same possession. Jones had at least 20 points for the fourth time in five games.

I have a feeling that if K-State would have won, we would have had a lot of Wildcat trolls on this website. That being said, K-State has Baylor on Monday in Manhattan, a game they could lose. Then, we all know what comes January 29? A date with the Hawks---ESPN Game Day---oh, boy! KU has its work cut out at CU on Tuesday.

He's still on their team. He logged one rebound, one foul with zero points in this loss to aTm.

Maybe you should go ahead and make plans for the NIT, since you're so in love with them, jayhawkinnebr. Oh, wait, bad man, Jacob Pullen said he wasn't going to play in no NIT---not this year-----never mind!!!!!

HAHAHAHA....That was so funny!

"I'm not going to the NIT. I won't play." -Jacob Pullen, aka pre-season All-American, aka the greatest player.

yeah right! what a cocky dude! Forget about K-State! ROCK CHALK!

yep the kitties look great in all the losses. ha ha ha would rather look bad and win..... 1 loss folks.. predicted this team would have 2 conference losses. this is not the pac 10.. think we already won the division out there UCLA, USC, Cal, Arizona... K State may not even be home team in NIT

KU_FanSince75 10 years, 10 months ago

Let's see---Big Monday---Baylor @ K-State----K-State standing at 1-4---oh, try not to look ahead to Saturday's match up with the Jayhawks on Saturday----geeeze, wild kitties----no pressure against da Bears tonight----good luck!

KSUck is like a hairball in a sewage drain. When the pressure gets higher, they unclog and spiral downward even lower. The fact that the AP ranked them #3 pre-season goes to show you just how many idiots there are in the AP. Pullens IQ is lower than his scoring average. They will be lucky to get an invite to the NIT.
