    Kansas State edges past No. 17 Texas A&M for upset

    MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) -- Claire Coggins scored 20 points to become the 32nd Kansas State player with 1,000 career points, leading the Wildcats to a 48-45 upset of No. 17 Texas A&M on Saturday.

    The Aggies had a chance to win in the final seconds, but Coggins stole the ball and then hit one free throw to give the Wildcats a 48-45 lead with 7 seconds left.

    A'Quonesia Franklin's desperation shot at the buzzer didn't fall and Texas A&M (10-3, 0-1 Big 12 Conference) dropped to 0-3 on the road this season.

    Kansas State (13-2, 1-1), won its 13th consecutive game at Bramlage Coliseum, dating back to March 17, 2006. It was the Wildcats' first win over a ranked opponent since a 72-69 victory over No. 11 Texas in the 2005 Big 12 Tournament.

    Coggins hit a 3-pointer with 9:09 left in the first half to reach the 1,000-point mark, but didn't stop there. She scored the final nine points of the half for the Wildcats, who trailed 26-24 at the break.

    Ashley Sweat scored 11 points for the Wildcats, who shot 47.5 percent from the field to make up for 24 turnovers. Marlies Gipson posted her third double-double of the season with 11 points and 10 rebounds.

    Takia Starks and Danielle Gant scored 10 points apiece to lead the Aggies, who shot 31.7 percent from the floor. Texas A&M missed its first 11 shots from beyond the arc before Franklin hit a 3-pointer with 5:13 remaining to pull the Aggies within a point.

    Texas A&M finished 1-of-13 from 3-point range.
