It certainly wasn’t pretty, but the Cats did score the win on Sunday in OT over North Florida 79-68. It was the second straight over-time game for K-State, but while the game against West Virginia felt like a tournament atmosphere, this game was the total opposite. The Wildcat’s halftime lead turned into a 9 point deficit following a 24-8 run by North Florida. The Cats eventually battled back to take the lead only to have UNF’s Jimmy Williams force OT at the buzzer. The OT period was all K-State and the Cats move to 6-1 on the season. K-State was again led in scoring by freshman forward Thomas Gipson who powered his way to a career high 23 points and 12 rebounds.
