Kansas State started slowly, while Texas Christian made its first three three-point attempts to open an early 9-5 lead in the teams’ quarterfinal match-up at the Big 12 basketball tournament at Sprint Center. The Horned Frogs would eventually stretch their lead to 23-11. But behind K-State’s usual defensive pressure and some unusual offensive production off the bench, K-State reeled in the Horned Frogs, took a lead 42-39 with just under fifteen minutes to play on a three-point bucket by Kamau Stokes, and led the rest of the way to a 70-61 victory.
