MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) -- Marcus Foster hit four 3-pointers and finished with 25 points, helping Kansas State rebound from a rare season-opening loss to beat Oral Roberts 71-63 on Wednesday night.
D.J. Johnson added 12 points and Will Spradling 10 for the Wildcats (1-1), who lost their first home opener in two decades to Northern Colorado earlier in the week. That defeat also ended the defending Big 12 champions' 47-game winning streak at Bramlage Coliseum.
Kansas State struggled early on against the Golden Eagles (1-1) but finally found its rhythm early in the second half, and then made enough plays in the closing minutes to put them away.
Obi Emegano, a transfer from Western Illinois, scored 24 points to lead Oral Roberts. Utah transfer Shawn Glover scored 15 of his 21 points in the second half.
