Kansas State had never beaten Kentucky in its program history (0-9), but that changed Thursday night.

KSU beat UK 61-58 in the Sweet 16 and ended the Cats’ impressive tournament run.

One of the glaring numbers for Kentucky was its 15 turnovers, compared to Kansas State’s 10, and Kentucky made just one more field goal (16) than it committed turnovers. That’s not a recipe for success. The Cats also made just 3-11 three pointers. It was certainly an off-night for Kentucky.

Kansas State’s best player Dean Wade played just eight minutes in the first half, and he didn’t play in the second. But Xavier Sneed took over the game in Wade’s absence. The sophomore scored an impressive 22 points and grabbed nine rebounds, and he hit 5-8 three pointers.

The play of the game was Kansas State’s Barry Brown’s layup with 18 seconds left to give the Wildcats a 60-58 lead.

Kentucky’s PJ Washington finished with a team-high 18 points, but he struggled from the free throw line making just 8-20. Kevin Knox finished with 13 points, while Shai Gilgeous-Alexander finished with 15.

Kansas State advances to the Elite Eight to play Loyola-Chicago.
