MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP)Damion Baugh scored 12 points and his 3-pointer with 13 seconds left was part of an 8-0 run that TCU staged in the final 1:11 to beat Kansas State 60-57 on Wednesday night.
Markquis Nowell’s layup with 1:50 left gave the Wildcats a 57-52 lead, but they’d never score again. Kansas State missed its last two shots, the front end of a 1-and-1 twice and turned it over once.
Mike Miles made two foul shots for TCU (11-2, 1-1 Big 12 Conference) with 1.4 seconds left. Nowell’s little more than half-court heave bounced off the back rim to end it.
Miles scored 19 points and Emanuel Miller grabbed 10 rebounds for the Horned Frogs.
Nowell scored 18 points and was a pest on defense with seven steals. His seven strips tied for the most in a conference game in Kansas State (9-6, 1-3) history. LaKeith Humphrey snatched seven in a game in the former Big 8 Conference in the 1988-89 season. Nijel Pack and Mark Smith each scored 10.
