LAWRENCE, Kan. -

Kansas State defeated the University of Kansas, 59-55, Saturday at Allen Fieldhouse to end a 31-game losing streak to the Jayhawks. The loss snapped a seven-game winning streak for KU and drops its record to 10-5 overall and 1-1 in Big 12 play.

Kansas looked in control of the game in the first half and early in the second. The Jayhawks took a 26-18 lead at the half helped by a 12-0 run midway through the stanza that gave KU a 12-point edge.

Sophomore Sasha Kaun's dunk gave the Jayhawks a 12-point lead with 17:05 left in the game. After the flush, Kansas State started to chip away at KU's lead. The Wildcats used a 10-2 run to pull within a point of KU with less than six minutes to play.

A layup by Cartier Martin and a jumper by Clent Stewart gave KSU a 50-47 lead with 4:16 remaining. Sophomore Russell Robinson tied the game at 50 with a 3-pointer on KU's next possession. Stewart responded with two free throws and Martin put in a jumper to give KSU a four-point lead, its largest of the game.

A runner by freshman Brandon Rush pulled the Jayhawks to within three points with 55 second left. With nine seconds remaining, Akeem Wright knocked down the second of his two free throws, giving KSU a 59-55 victory and its first against KU since 1994.

The Wildcats only committed four turnovers in the second half after 15 in the first. KSU shot 57.1 percent in the second half to KU's 25.9.

Freshman Mario Chalmers poured in a career-high 20 points on 6-of-14 shooting and added four assists and four steals. Rush notched 12 points and Robinson 11. Kaun came off the bench to score eight points and pull down nine boards.

Unfortunately, yes I was. I sat alone in the rafters in disbelief as the small contingent of Staters had a little pep rally down below.

Ha! LOL. Yes, that neckbrace! Whatever happened to Jim Woolbridge?
and, doesn't that seem longer than just four years ago that he was the K-State coach. K-State's basketball program has come a long way.

Thanks, Mr. Geezer, for the update. Ending the losing streak at AFH did not prevent his losing his job at the end of the season. He stepped out of the locker room after K-State's Big XII Tournament loss, and immediately got canned. Without losing coaches at K-State, and Hubby coming to Manhattan, K-State might still be in the cellar.

I was there and it was bad, but I've seen plenty of great games since.

Yup, sitting in student section. Worst was when the State fans started doing there, "K......S......U....Wildcats" over and over again after they lost.

Make matters worst my cousin and his wife came over to my apartment for dinner that night and of course they both graduated from, you guessed K-State.

I too was there. The thing I remember about that game was that ksu when into a zone with about 15:00 left and we didn't know what to do. We shot 26% and scored like 18 points the rest of the game.

Guess Jim Woolrige was a good coach after all.
And, there's a darn zone again beating us.

Wooly actually wasn't that bad a coach of the game, he just couldn't get players that could shoot.
