Manhattan, KS (Sports Network) - James Anderson had 30 points as Oklahoma State shocked 10th-ranked Kansas State with a 73-69 win at Fred Bramlage Coliseum.

Obi Muonelo had 14 points and eight rebounds and Nick Sidorakis added nine points for the Cowboys (15-4, 3-2 Big 12), who have won their past two games.

Denis Clemente had 19 points, Curtis Kelly added 13 points and seven rebounds and Jacob Pullen donated 11 points, six assists and five rebounds for the Wildcats (16-3, 3-2), who had won their previous three games.

The battle went back-and-forth through much of the second half, but it tipped back to the Cowboys as they scored 10 straight points and held a 58-55 lead when Sidorakis put in a layup with 5 1/2 minutes to play.

After Jamar Samuels hit a free throw, Muonelo made a three-ball for a 61-56 advantage, but Clemente countered with a pair of free throws with 3 1/2 minutes left in the game.

Anderson then made two from the line and Rodney McGruder countered with a jumper, but Muonelo buried a three-pointer for a 66-60 lead with 2:20 to play.

Clemente then came up big with a three-pointer and, after Keiton Page made two from the stripe, Pullen hit another from long distance to make it a 68-66 game with 1:22 to play.

Muonelo countered with two free throws, but then missed two after Pullen failed on a three-point attempt.

Nick Russell then hit on one-of-two with 33 seconds left with Rodney McGruder grabbing the offensive board and Kelly hitting two free throws to make it a 70-69 game with 28 seconds left.

Martavious Irving then stole the ball off of Muonelo, but Sidorakis stripped the ball off of Irving and Roger Franklin hit one-of-two from the line with 17 seconds left.

Following a Kansas State timeout, Pullen missed a layup and Sidorakis made his two free throws with eight seconds left to seal the win.

The Wildcats jumped out to a 10-2 lead on consecutive three-pointers by Clemente with the second one coming just over three minutes in.

The Cowboys answered with a 12-2 run of their own and held a 14-12 lead with 11:25 to play in the first half on a three-ball by Anderson.

Kansas State, though, later used an 8-0 run to take the lead back and had a 35-32 lead after 20 minutes of play.

Kansas State plays at Baylor on Tuesday...Oklahoma State hosts Texas A&M on Wednesday...Despite trailing in the all-time series, 69-46, the Cowboys have won seven of the last eight meetings with the Wildcats, and 12 of the 14 matchups between the two since the formation of the Big 12 back in 1996-97.
