Denis Clemente scored 18 of his 21 points in the second half, including a clinching bucket in the final seconds, and No. 7 Kansas State rallied from two big deficits before beating last-place Nebraska 91-87 on Wednesday night.

Riding the crest of their highest national ranking since 1962, the Wildcats (21-4, 8-3 Big 12) trailed by 10 points in the first half and were down nine early in the second to a team coming off a 40-point loss at No. 15 Texas.

Four consecutive free throws by Martavious Irving gave Kansas State a seemingly safe 87-78 lead before Lance Jeter and Ryan Anderson made 3-pointers. The Huskers inbounded the ball with 42 seconds to go after Jacob Pullen dribbled out of bounds. Anderson connected with another 3, tying it at 87.

Anderson had 22 points for Nebraska (13-13, 1-10) and Brandon Richardson had 15.
