For the Bears (16-9, 4-8 Big 12), Cory Jefferson led the way with a double- double, scoring 21 and pulling down 11 rebounds, while Isaiah Austin added 18 points and Taurean Price chipped in with 12 points, as Baylor snapped a four- game home skid, their longest in nine years.

Nino Williams paced the Wildcats (17-8, 7-5) with 20 points, while Marcus Foster finished with 18 points and 10 assists, and Thomas Gipson scored 12.

Kansas State shot 46.4 percent from the field in the first half, including 2- of-9 from 3-point range. The Wildcats finished the half on a 12-6 run and took a 30-21 lead into halftime. Baylor struggled from the field in the first, making just 26.7 percent of its shots from the field and just 2-of-14 from beyond the arc.

The Bears improved their shooting after the break, connecting on 46.2 percent but still had difficulty from deep, missing all but one of their seven 3-point tries. The Wildcats' shooting declined in the second half, as they hit just 35.5 percent and 1-of-5 from deep. Trailing by 10 with under eight to play in regulation, the Bears scored 10 straight points in a little over three minutes to knot the score at 51-51.

In the first extra session, the teams traded leads with neither team going ahead by more than three. After Foster made 1-of-2 free-throws to knot the score at 68-68, Chery had a chance to win it but his jumper at the horn was off the mark, sending the game to double-overtime.
