Mike McGuirl scored 19 points, hitting three straight 3’s in the final minutes, and Kansas State took down No. 7 Oklahoma 62-57 on Tuesday night.
The Sooners led by six with three minutes to play, before McGuirl took over. He hit the three 3s and Kansas State took a 3-point lead. The Wildcats (7-18, 3-13 Big 12) didn’t lose the lead after that point.
Davion Bradford scored 13 points and DaJuan Gordon had 11 as Kansas State beat a top 10 opponent at home for the first time in three years — beating then No. 4 Oklahoma.
It’s the Wildcats’ second straight win and first at home in Big 12 play this season.
The loss is the ninth straight in Manhattan for Oklahoma dating back to 2013.
Austin Reaves scored 18 of his 25 points in the second half. De’Vion Harmon had 13 and Umoja Gibson had seven points and 11 rebounds (14-6, 9-5).
Reaves took over late in the second half scoring 10 straight points, but was the only Sooner to make a field goal in the final 10 minutes of the game. He sat the majority of the first half with two fouls — one was a technical.
Both teams shot 39% while Kansas State went 7 of 27 from 3 and the Sooners were 4 of 20.
Oklahoma: Other than Reaves, the Sooners went cold in the second half. This is a major blow to postseason seedings.
Kansas State: This was the win that had been close for the Wildcats in the past two weeks.
