MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) Barry Brown had repeatedly driven down the right side of the lane for buckets, or at the very least a foul, helping Kansas State slowly emerge from a 21-point second-half hole against West Virginia.
So with the game on the line in the final minute, was there any question what he would do?
Brown hesitated at the top of the key, took a couple dribbles to his right and got an off-balance leaner over the Mountaineers Derek Culver to go with 28.9 seconds left Wednesday night, giving Brown 29 points for the game and the Wildcats a wild 71-69 victory.
