LUBBOCK, Tex. -

Kansas State rallied late in the second half to beat Texas Tech 60 to 56 and snap a 6-game road losing streak.  

A flagrant foul called on Jordan Tolbert was the turning point for Kansas State in the second half.  The Wildcats reeled off a 20-5 run to take a 54-47 lead after Tolbert fouled Wesley Iwundu.

But Texas Tech went on a 6-0 run in less than a minute to tie the game at 54 after a flagrant foul was called on the Wildcats' Nino Williams.  

With less than a minute to play and down by two, Kansas State's Wesley Iwundu converted a three-point play to take a one point lead over the Red Raiders.  Will Spradling hit the front end of his free throw and then Marcus Foster game up with a steal in the final seconds to seal the win.  Iwundu scored the final layup with less than a second remaining. 

Will Spradling scored his 1,000th career point on a 3-pointer with a little more than 4 minutes remaining in the game and he would finish with 10 points.  Foster led all scorers with 17 points. 

Kansas State hosts Iowa State this Saturday, March 1st at 6 pm.
