Rebels Lose First Game of Season

Posted: Updated:
MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) - Marcus Foster and Thomas Gipson scored 15 points each to lead Kansas State, and Marshall Henderson's go-ahead 3-point try with 2 seconds left missed everything, allowing the Wildcats to hang on for a 61-58 victory over Mississippi Thursday night.
 
Wesley Iwundu added 10 points, including a free throw after Henderson's missed 3-pointer, as the Wildcats (5-3) beat the Rebels (6-1) for the first time in five tries.
 
Henderson, the flamboyant guard who dazzled in last year's NCAA tournament, finished with 13 points but was just 4 of 18 from the field and 2 of 13 from beyond the arc.
 
Jarvis Summers led the Rebels with 18 points.
 
Neither team led by more than five points, and it remained tense in the closing seconds.
 
Henderson's fade-away 3-pointer with 28.8 seconds left got the Rebels within 59-58, but Will  Spradling made one of two free throws to give Kansas State a cushion.
