Oklahoma vs Kansas State

Kansas State upset Oklahoma 87-69 in Manhattan, Kansas on Tuesday night. Barry Brown led the way for the Wildcats with 24 points.

K-State made Trae Young struggle the entire night. He was held to 20 points on 8-of-21 shooting. The defensive effort (13-5, 3-3 Big 12) was enough for the Wildcats to bounce back from a heartbreaking 73-72 loss against rival Kansas. This was K-State’s sixth consecutive victory against the Sooners at Bramlage Coliseum.

K-State  captured the victory without its best player, Kamau Stokes, who remains out with a foot injury.
