Pack’s late 3 lifts Kansas State past Oklahoma State, 71-68


MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Nijel Pack ran down a long in-bounds pass, then found open space at the top of the key to launch a game-winning 3-pointer with 2.2 seconds left to give Kansas State a hard-fought 71-68 win over Oklahoma State. The game was tied four times in the final 6:46 after Mark Smith pulled Kansas State even at 62-62 with a three-point play. Smith tied the game again at 64-64 with a pair of free throws and at 66-66 on a jumper with 2:14 left. Bryce Thompson drew a foul while the Cowboys worked for a go-ahead field goal with :38 left, but missed the first free throw and Smith grabbed the rebound. Markquis Nowell’s 3-point attempt rimmed in and out with :12 left but Pack tied up the rebound and Kansas State retained possession.
