MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) - Jacob Pullen and Will Spradling had 17 points apiece and slow-starting Kansas State held on Monday night for a ragged, foul-plagued 69-61 victory over Baylor.
The Wildcats (14-7, 2-4), who had lost four of five and tumbled into last place in a Big 12 race they'd been favored to win, used an 11-1 run early in the second half to regain control after the Bears (13-6, 3-3) erased a 25-18 halftime deficit with a quick flurry of 3-pointers.
Quincy Acy led Baylor with 14 points. LaceDarius Dunn fouled out with 9 seconds left after scoring 13 points - seven below his league-leading average.
Curtis Kelly's dunk gave Kansas State a 60-50 lead, but the Bears cut it to 60-55 on a three-point play by Perry Jones. It was 63-58 with 28.8 seconds left when Kansas State's Juevol Myles hit two free throws - his only points of the game.
