Kansas State Vs. Baylor Final Score: Wildcats Hang On In Final Minute For 57-56 Victory Over Bears

The Kansas State Wildcats survive a crazy ending to defeat the No. 10 ranked Baylor Bears 57-56 on the road in Waco, Texas.

Perry Jones III fouled out of the game with four minutes remaining in the game as Jones was only able to muster 4 points total for the Bears. From there, the strong play of Rodney McGruder and Angel Rodriguez pushed the Wildcats to the finish line. McGruder and Rodriguez went for 15 points each to give Frank Martin's team their 19th win of the season plus a signature victory over one of the top teams in America.

The win over Baylor should solidify the Wildats an at-large birth in the NCAA tournament in March. For Baylor, their chances of getting a top-two seed in their bracket have diminished significantly.
