K-State basketball coach Bruce Weber is the first off the floor after the Wildcats’ 73-72 loss at Kansas on Saturday at Allen Fieldhouse.

If you’re a Kansas State fan, you probably wish that the last shot the team took on Saturday had been a better look.

The Wildcats had a chance to knock off “Sunflower State” rival Kansas at Allen Fieldhouse, but came up just short losing 73-72.

Barry Brown tried a long-range shot (ESPN’s Rich Hollenberg called it “the prayer”), but he was well guarded by the Jayhawks’ Malik Newman, and the ball was off the mark.

K-State had the ball with 15 seconds to play and took its time getting the ball up court. ESPN’s Fran Fraschilla at one point implored “gotta go” to the Wildcats.

Here is that final shot and Hollenberg’s call that “Kansas escapes again:”

After the game, Kansas State coach Bruce Weber explained what was supposed to happen on the play, which was designed for Dean Wade to take the final shot.

Dean Wade was supposed to get the final shot in the 73-72 loss to Kansas. Instead, Barry Brown took it.
