Three times in the fourth quarter Saturday night, the unranked Kansas State Wildcats women’s basketball team tied the score against the No. 12 Texas Longhorns.
Ultimately, however, Texas came out on top, winning 63-58 in Austin, Texas.
Senior guard Kindred Wesemann had 21 points for the Wildcats, senior center Breanna Lewis had 14 and junior guard Karyla Middlebrook had 12 in the loss.
K-State moved to 7-5 in the conference. Despite the loss, they maintained their fourth-place standing in the Big 12, in part due to the Iowa State Cyclones beating No. 22 West Virginia 80-55 in Morgantown, West Virginia, Saturday night.
The Wildcats will have until Saturday to brace for the coming Cyclones. Unlike most weeks so far this season, the Wildcats will not play a Wednesday night game, giving them a full six days to prepare.
The Cyclones beat the Wildcats once this season, winning in Ames, Iowa, 75-69 back on Jan. 21.
Saturday’s game is scheduled for 1 p.m. in Bramlage Coliseum.
