(MANHATTAN, Kan.) — Marcus Foster came through in a big way for Kansas State (16-7) on Saturday in their 74-57 win over Texas (18-5).
Foster scored a career-high 34 points and snapped the Longhorns’ seven-game winning streak.
”Texas is a team that makes a lot of runs,” Foster said. ”I just felt like they were making their run in trying to come back. I was in the right spot to make plays and my teammates found me.”
Kansas State led 39-18 and Foster’s 34 points were the most for a Kansas State freshman since Michael Beasley scored 39 in 2008.
”They beat us any way you can get beat,” Texas head coach Rick Barnes said. ”Right from the beginning whether you want to talk loose balls or from turning the ball over, you are not going to win with turning the ball over 18 times. Some of it had to do with them, but a lot of it had to do with what we were doing, too.”
Isaiah Taylor had 17 points for the Longhorns in the loss.
