Kansas State wins 57-56 at No. 9 Baylor

By  | 

WACO, Texas (AP) - Angel Rodriguez had 15 points and six assists and Kansas State made up for his potentially costly turnover in the final seconds as the Wildcats held on for a 57-56 victory at No. 9 Baylor on Saturday.

Rodriguez had an apparent breakaway layup with 13 seconds left after a turnover by Baylor guard Pierre Jackson. But Rodriguez was called for a traveling instead, giving the Bears one more chance.

Jackson worked the ball up the court for Baylor (22-5, 9-5 Big 12) and got it inside to Quincy Miller, who was surrounded as he tried to get off a game-winning shot. Jordan Henriquez, whose dunk with 1:55 left had put K-State up, was credited with a blocked shot as time expired.

Rodney McGruder also had 15 points for the Wildcats (18-8, 7-7), who had lost their previous two games.

Quincy Acy led Baylor with 14 points.
