MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - Shane Southwell made two free throws with 21 seconds left, then blocked Gary Browne's layup attempt with a second left to preserve No. 18 Kansas State's 65-64 win over West Virginia on Saturday.

Southwell and Rodney McGruder both had 17 points for the Wildcats (13-2, 2-0 Big 12), who won for the sixth straight time.

Jabarie Hinds had a career-high 15 points for West Virginia, (8-7, 1-2). Aaric Murray added 11 points and Terry Henderson scored 10.

After Southwell's free throws, West Virginia had two chances to retake the lead.

But Hinds missed a wild jumper from 16 feet with 12 seconds left. The Mountaineers got the rebound and called timeout.

The inbounds pass ended up in the backcourt. Browne grabbed the loose ball, dribbled the length of the court and attempted a layup, which Southwell swatted away just before the final buzzer.
