Kansas State beats TCU in OT, advances to Big 12 semifinals

The third time was the charm for Kansas.

With conference tournament play underway in NCAA basketball, there is a game between two in-state rivals from the Big 12.

Newman is coming off a career-high 30 points against OSU in the quarterfinals, which included 11-for-15 shooting, 4-for-6 from 3-point range. They eventually pushed the advantage to 43-30 by the break.

From there, Kansas was simply too much for the Cowboys in the second half despite 17 points from Jeffrey Carroll and 14 from Kendall Smith. But when Robinson's pass was deflected out of bounds, a video review showed Brodziansky touched it last, and the officials reversed their original call and gave Kansas State the ball. Oklahoma entered Wednesday's action 36th in the RPI, while Arizona State was 58th.

The semifinal slate featured the conference's top four seeds, including a meeting between the No. 1 Kansas Jayhawks and No. 4 Kansas State Wildcats in the early tilt. Why did this season's edition of Sooner basketball become so bad over such a prolonged period after starting out as one of the top success stories in college basketball?

The game wasn't without drama. And by the time Lagerald Vick curled in back-to-back baskets, the lead had swelled to 71-59 and the Jayhawks were on their way toward the title game. While the Horned Frogs shot a respectable 46.3 percent, missed several key opportunities to finish at the rim, converted just 7 of 14 free throws and committed 14 turnovers leading to 17 Kansas State points.

The Wildcats will need more bench production going forward, though; the bench only contributed ten points (four more than TCU's bench, but who's counting). "I don't think it's even a question of whether we deserve to play in the NCAA Tournament".

TCU heads back to Fort Worth, Texas, to wait out Selection Sunday.

TCU led by nine early in the second half but the game was close throughout. Oklahoma has played 18 games since the first week in January, and over that span the Sooners have won just six times. "For us, he's made shots in this tournament". Mykhailiuk averages 15.2 points per game, which is second on the team. Bane was held to three points (10 below his average), which came on the his game-tying shot at the end of regulation.

Kansas will play in its 21st overall conference tournament title, including its 13th in the Big 12 era, when it takes on the victor of No. 2 seed-Texas Tech and No. 3-seed West Virginia. The West Virginia offense should continue to shine while its defense does enough to keep the Red Raiders at bay.
