Xavier Sneed gave the Wildcats the lead with 30.2 seconds left when he made two free throws, but Newman got to the line at the other end and the 86-percent foul shooter converted both. That gave Kansas State the last shot, but Barry Brown's rushed 3-pointer from well beyond the arc was no good.

The Jayhawks raced to a 13-4 lead before the Wildcats ratcheted up the defensive intensity. Kansas struggled to get the ball inside and eventually went nearly 10 minutes with just one field goal.

  Royals trade Joakim Soria, Scott Alexander in three-team deal, save $9 million On a Monday last month, Royals general manager Dayton Moore sat inside a hotel suite at Walt Disney World and promised to restock his club's farm system. On Thursday, the Royals executed a three-team trade that sent relievers Joakim Soria to the Chicago White Sox and Scott Alexander to the Los Angeles Dodgers and returned right-handed pitcher Trevor Oaks and switch-hitting infielder Erick Mejia from the Dodgers. The trade also sent Dodgers pitcher Luis Avilan to the Chicago White Sox, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The Wildcats slowly pulled ahead during a 14-3 run, but back-to-back 3s by Svi Mykhailiuk — the last from about 25 feet at the buzzer — knotted the game 34-all at the break.

That's when Azubuike and Graham went to work.

The big fella scored the first two baskets of the second half, then Graham knocked down a 3, as the pair got an inside-outside game going. They combined for all the Jayhawks' points during a 15-2 run that turned a 36-34 deficit into a 49-38 lead with about 13 minutes left in the game.

Diarra clawed the Wildcats back once more, at one point scoring 11 straight for them, and the game was tied at 64 at the under-4 media timeout to set up a frantic race to the finish.

DE SOUZA CLEARED

Silvio De Souza, a 6-foot-9 forward from Angola, was cleared by the NCAA before tip to play for Kansas. The five-star prospect graduated from high school last month and has been practicing while waiting for his paperwork to be confirmed. He debuted midway through the first half and played 4 minutes. "I know it's a big relief to Silvio, who has been very patient throughout this process," Kansas coach Bill Self.

Travis Kelce suffers concussion after hit to helmet, leaves game

  Travis Kelce suffers concussion after hit to helmet, leaves game Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce played a major role in his team jumping out to a big lead in the first half of Saturday’s wild-card game against the Titans, but he was forced to leave the game late in the second quarter after taking a hit to his helmet. It happened when Kelce caught a pass after running a shallow crossing route, and was the unfortunate recipient of a helmet-to-helmet hit from Titans safety Johnathan Cyprien, who was apparently attempting to jar the ball loose. Cyprien was not flagged for the hit, and was not subject to targeting, as Kelce had become a ball carrier on the play.

That gave Kansas State the last shot, but Barry Brown’s rushed 3-pointer from well beyond the arc was no good. Dean Wade had 22 points to lead the Latest COLLEGE BASKETBALL TALK. No. 5 Purdue wins 13th in a row, 81-47 vs. Minnesota January 13, 2018 3:21 pm No . 12 Kansas holds on to beat

Marcus Foster scored 20 points, including two free throws in the closing seconds of overtime, and Kansas State held on to beat No. 7 Kansas 85-82 on Monday night.

PRESTON STILL WAITS

Another five-star prospect, Billy Preston, remains sidelined while Kansas looks into the ownership of a car he was driving during an accident last fall. The freshman has not played this season.

STOKES IN A BOOT

Kansas State guard Kamau Stokes, the Wildcats' third-leading scorer, missed his second straight game with a left foot injury. He was wearing a walking boot and it remains unclear when he will be back.

BIG PICTURE

Kansas State has lost nail-biters in its last two trips to the Phog. Last year, it was a missed traveling call on the Jayhawks' Mykhailiuk that cost them a win over the Wildcats' biggest rival.

Kansas has followed a league-opening loss to Texas Tech with three Big 12 wins by a combined 10 points. That ability to close games has been a hallmark ever since Self took over the program.
