K-State hands Mississippi its first loss

On one end of the court, Thomas Gipson fought his way to the rim and made a contested layup. On the other, he blocked back-to-back shots and helped his teammates score in transition. The crowd at Bramlage Coliseum, easily the largest of the season, roared in approval. That sequence didn’t go down as the decisive moment in Kansas State’s 61-58 victory over Mississippi in Thursday’s Big 12/SEC challenge, but it might have been the most important.
