MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) -- David Hoskins and Lance Harris led a second-half comeback and Kansas State erased an 11-point deficit Wednesday to beat Baylor 69-60 and keep the Bears winless on the road for more than two years.
The Wildcats, after shooting 55 percent the first half, missed their first 15 shots of the second half while Henry Dugat and Aaron Bruce led a 12-1 run to turn a 39-39 halftime tie into a 51-40 Baylor lead.Then the Wildcats (12-6, 2-2 Big 12), who have had trouble scoring throughout Bob Huggins' first year as coach, canned six of their next seven from the field and finally went ahead 59-58 on Cartier Martin's 3-pointer with 5:07 left.After Aaron Bruce drew nothing but air on a 3-point attempt, Hoskins hit a free throw and rebounded Bruce's miss and Harris went in for a layup and a 62-58 Kansas State advantage.The Bears (11-6, 1-3) got only two points and five rebounds from Kevin Rogers, their 6-9 sophomore who had been averaging 16.7 points and 9.7 rebounds in Big 12 play. He fouled out with 3:15 left as the Bears lost for the 31st time in their last 33 true road games, a streak that dates back to Dec. 30, 2004. Baylor has lost 19 straight Big 12 road games.Harris had 18 points for Kansas State, Martin had 15, Hoskins 13 and Clent Stewart 12, including a contested layup that put Kansas State on top 65-60.Dugat had 15 and Bruce 13 for Baylor.After Stewart muscled in for his bucket, Hoskins added four free throws on two separate trips to the line, giving the Wildcats their second straight win.The Wildcats missed every conceivable shot during their second-half drought -- short ones, long ones, uncontested 6-footers and attempted layups when a Bear would swoop in to make a great defensive play.Dugat capped Baylor's spree with a follow shot underneath and a breakaway basket after Bruce made a long pass across court on his knees.Fouled by Harris, Dugat made the free throw and the Bears had a double-digit lead with Rogers, their leading scorer, having spent most of the game on the bench with foul trouble.Rogers picked up his third foul with 9:03 left in the first half and went to the bench. He went back to the bench with foul No. 4 early in the second half and did not score until hitting a short jumper with 8:38 to play, putting the Bears on top 53-46.The Wildcats shot only 44 percent for the game and forced only 12 turnovers after averaging more than 19 the previous 10 games.
