LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) Marcus Foster scored 17 points, shooting 3 of 6 from beyond the arc, to lead Kansas State to a 60-56 win over Texas Tech Tuesday night and secure a much-needed road win as conference play dwindles down.

Wesley Iwundu added 12 points, 11 of them coming in the second half, and five rebounds for the Wildcats. Thomas Gipson and Will Spradling each added 10.

Dejan Kravic led the Red Raiders with 13 points, six rebounds and four blocks and Jordan Tolbert added 10 points and nine rebounds.

Texas Tech (13-15) led by as many as nine, 38-29, with 13:02 to go but the Wildcats (19-9) fought back and minutes later put up a 9-0 run of their own to take a seven-point lead, 54-47, with 4:34 left.

Iwundu scored the go-ahead free throw to complete a 3-point play after a layup with 55 seconds to go to make it 57-56.
