Rodney McGruder hit a 3-pointer at the buzzer and 13th-ranked Kansas State pulled out a 64-61 victory Saturday night after a failed desperation inbound pass gave the Wildcats one more chance.
Instead of settling for overtime after K-State's Shane Southwell missed badly with 1 second left, the Bears (17-12, 8-8 Big 12) brought seldom-used Jacob Neubert off the bench to try a length-of-the-court inbound pass.
But the ball went out of bounds without being touched, so the Wildcats got it under their own basket with the second still on the clock.
After a timeout, Angel Rodriguez inbounded to McGruder on the right wing.
McGruder had 18 points to lead Kansas State (24-5, 13-3), which won its fifth straight to maintain a share of the Big 12 lead with sixth-ranked Kansas with two regular season games left.
Pierre Jackson had 18 points and seven assists for Baylor.
