Kansas State snapped a four-game losing streak with a thrilling 75-70 overtime victory over No. 4 Kansas. Tylor Perry led the charge for the Wildcats with a season-high 26 points, including eight crucial points in the extra period. Cam Carter contributed a double-double with 19 points and 11 rebounds, while Arthur Kaluma added 13 points and eight boards.
