Cats Upset Longhorns 85-81 in OT

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Denis Clemente tied a Big 12 record with 44 points, leading Kansas State to an 85-81 overtime upset of No. 11 Texas on Saturday, ending the Longhorns' 19-game home winning streak.

Clemente tied the conference mark set last season by former Wildcat Michael Beasley. He went 6-of-6 on 3-pointers and his last two free throws with 6.9 seconds left in overtime put the game away. Fred Brown had given Kansas State the lead with a 3-pointer with 18.6 seconds left.

Brown finished with 13 points for the Wildcats (14-7, 3-4).

Texas had rallied from 17 points down in the second half to send the game into overtime. Damion James scored 19 points to lead the Longhorns (15-5, 4-2).

Texas' A.J. Abrams made four 3-pointers to break the Big 12 career mark of 338 he shared with Kansas' Jeff Boschee (1999-2002).

Kansas State led 63-46 with 7:01 to play when Clemente and Brown combined for eight straight points before Texas started to rally. Abrams hit a 3-pointer, converted a three-point play and then struck again from long range as the Longhorns cut it to 69-64 with 3:01 left.

Withering ball pressure by Texas defenders and misfires by Kansas State shooters kept the comeback going on a steady pace. The Longhorns finally made it 74-74 to send it to overtime when Justin Mason powered over Jacob Pullen in the lane for a layup with 9 seconds left.

Clemente had a chance to win it in the final seconds but his off-balance shot was too long.

Kansas State opened the overtime with four straight points on free throws by Clemente and a layup by Ron Anderson before Texas answered with baskets from Damion James and Mason.

Texas' Gary Johnson tied it 79-79 with a free throw before Brown made the long 3-pointer from the left wing. He let the shot go with just 4 seconds left on the shot clock.

Clement was 13-of-25 from the field and Kansas State shot 38 percent, but the Wildcats went 23-of-35 from the free throw line and forced 20 turnovers.

At halftime, Texas retired the No. 15 jersey of basketball Hall of Famer Slater Martin. A guard, Martin led Texas to a 63-14 record from 1947-49 and a third-place finish in the NCAA tournament in 1947. Martin played 11 seasons in the NBA, winning five titles.
