STILLWATER, Okla. (KSNT) – K-State basketball lost their 12th game in a row on Saturday against 23rd ranked Oklahoma State. This marks the longest single season losing streak in program history.

The ‘Cats didn’t go away easy though, as they gave OSU a scare with a 16-0 run in the second half. The run shrunk the Oklahoma State lead to only four with 14:27 to go in the second half.
OSU responded with a 7-0 run of their own, and their lead was healthy the rest of the way. K-State trailed by as many as 13 in the game, and went on to lose by seven.

The loss moves K-State to 5-17 overall and 1-12 in the conference.
