Fourth-ranked Texas will try to get back on the winning track when it hosts COVID-depleted and reeling Kansas State on Saturday in a Big 12 clash in Austin, Texas. The Longhorns (10-2, 4-1 Big 12) look to rebound after a 79-77 loss at home Wednesday to No. 15 Texas Tech on a bucket by the Red Raiders' Mac McClung in the final seconds. Kansas State (5-8, 1-4) heads to Austin after it was forced to postpone its Wednesday game at home against Iowa State because of the Wildcats' inability to meet required COVID-19 player thresholds.
MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) -- Isaac Likekele had 15 points on 6-of-9 shooting and grabbed nine rebounds to help Oklahoma State beat Kansas State 70-54 on Saturday night.
But it’s more about how the Wildcats made it to 5-7. A loss to Fort Hays State in game 5 of the season seemed to spell doom for the season. But a week later, a road win in Ames re-sparked hope in the WeberCats before another embarassing loss, this one a blow-out against Baylor, tried really hard to snuff that spark back out.
