WATCH: Buzzer-Beater Pushes Kansas Past Kansas State

With No. 3 Kansas and in-state rival Kansas State tied with 5.6 seconds remaining in regulation, everyone in Allen Fieldhouse (and those watching on TV) knew who head coach Bill Self wanted to get the ball to: senior guard Frank Mason II. But Kansas State took away that option, resulting in Kansas junior forward Svi Mykhailiuk getting the pass from Devonté Graham and being entrusted with dribbling the length of the court.

Mykhailiuk did just that, making a layup as time expired to give Kansas a 90-88 victory. But upon review, it sure looks like Mykhialiuk got away with an extra step (or two) on his way to the basket.

Mykhailiuk’s game-winner gave him 11 points on the night, making him Kansas’ (13-1, 2-0 Big 12) fifth double-digit scorer on the night with freshman forward Josh Jackson leading the way with 22 points. Kansas State (12-2, 1-1) also had five double-digit scorers, with forward Dean Wade leading the way with 20.

lol… gota love bein at home. big ku fan, grew up loving them and still do. this is a walk, there is no arguing that. this is an obvious travel even in the nba. wish they would have called it and let it go in to OT… but that being said, they get to play again, in state’s house… gifts like that won’t be given to the ol’ jayhawks in bramliage . perhaps the refs will remember this in the final seconds, because based on the way the cats performed tonight, it will most likely come down to the wire once again. love the rivalry, always fun to watch. glad to see the wildcats are back in the big leagues, nothing worse than disparate play between such classic rivals.
