MANHATTAN, Kansas (AP) – Three Sooners scored in double figures Tuesday night but it would not be enough as Kansas State finished with a .519 shooting percentage and knocked down 10 3-pointers to top No. 21 Oklahoma, 87-71, at Bramlage Coliseum.
Kindred Wesemann made 6 of 8 from 3-point range, 8 of 10 free throws and finished with 26 points and five assists to help the Kansas State women beat No. 21 Oklahoma 87-71 Tuesday night.
Breanna Lewis had 15 points, seven rebounds, two steals and two blocked shots, while Bri Craig scored a season-high 12 for Kansas State.
Gabbi Ortiz hit a 3-pointer to give Oklahoma (16-7, 7-5 Big 12) an 18-9 lead with 2:56 left in the first quarter.
Wesemann hit back-to-back 3s - and added two more - to start a 27-7 run that was capped by four-straight points from Kayla Goth with 3:44 left in the half that gave Kansas State (15-8, 5-7) a 38-27 lead.
Derica Wyatt's layup with 2:14 left in the third pulled the Sooners within three, 56-53, but Wesemann answered with a 3-pointer and Oklahoma went eight minutes, 55 seconds without a field goal while Kansas State pushed its lead to 23 with 3:31 to play.
Gioya Carter led Oklahoma with a season-high 19 points, while Vionise Pierre-Louis added in a career-high 18 on a perfect 8-of-8 shooting. Wyatt finished with 15 points and hit five of Oklahoma's seven 3-pointers.
The Sooners return home on Sunday afternoon to take on No. 6/5 Texas at 1:30 p.m. CT at Lloyd Noble Center. The game will be televised on Fox Sports 1. Tickets are available on SoonerSports.com starting at $8.
