Cats drop home finale to Baylor, 76-74



The Kansas State men’s basketball team had its senior day spoiled on Saturday in a 76-74 loss to Baylor in Bramlage Coliseum.

It was the first home loss in Big 12 play for the Wildcats (20-11, 10-8) and the Bears (21-10, 9-9) became the first team to sweep K-State this year.

K-State played its best basketball in the first half, putting together an early run to take a 13-4 lead, and putting together a late run to lead 33-25 at halftime.

But after the Wildcats went ahead 37-25 early in the second half, the Bears’ offense caught fire and took a 45-43 lead with 9:35 left to play. Marcus Foster made three 3-pointers in the final minute to bring the Wildcats within two points, but it wasn’t enough to overcome the Bears lead.

Foster finished the game with 29 points for K-State, while Kenny Cherry scored 29 for Baylor. Thomas Gipson had 16 and Nino Williams finished with 11 for the Wildcats. The Bears got 16 points from Cory Jefferson.
