MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) - Marcus Foster scored a career-high 34 points on 13-of-16 shooting and Kansas State beat No. 15 Texas 74-57 on Saturday, ending the Longhorns' seven-game winning streak.
Foster surpassed the previous scoring mark for a Kansas State freshman set by Michael Beasley against Colorado with 33 points on March 4, 2008. Foster's previous high was 25 points against Oral Roberts on Nov. 13.
Will Spradling added nine points for the Wildcats (16-7, 6-4 Big 12) who extended their home winning streak to 12 games. The win improved coach Bruce Weber's record at Bramlage Coliseum to 292, 13-1 in conference games.
Isaiah Taylor had 17 points for the Longhorns (18-5, 7-3) while Connor Lammert added eight points. Texas entered the game with four players averaging in double figures.
Foster's impressive dunk off an alley-oop dunk pass was the highlight of an opening 18-4 run for the Wildcats over the game's opening 8 minutes.
