Spradling returns

He didn’t start, but Will Spradling played 19 minutes after missing K-State’s last game against TCU with a bruised sternum. He made two three-pointers in the closing moments, but didn’t score before. His presence was noticeable within the offense, though.

K-State coach Bruce Weber said he played him more than he was hoping to, because the Wildcats didn’t get much movement on offense without him.

“He hasn’t practiced in two weeks, probably. Ten days at least,” Weber said. “His condition is bad and we’ve got to get him healthy.”

Henriquez ailing

Jordan Henriquez was limited to 10 minutes with a back injury. Weber didn’t say much about the ailment, other than that Henriquez’s back “went out.” Henriquez has battled back spasms and injuries all season, but has been healthy recently. Weber wasn’t sure what his status was going forward.

Worth noting

Play was momentarily stopped twice in the first half. At the beginning of the game, officials stopped the game in order for a camera man to get positioned under the basket. Later, a Gatorade bottle fell onto the court in front of the Oklahoma State bench. That stoppage prevented K-State from attempting a three-pointer.… Nino Williams was a big factor in K-State’s victory over Oklahoma State at Bramlage Coliseum, scoring 17 points. But he couldn’t get going in the rematch. He finished with two points and six rebounds.… Fans watching the game in areas of northeast Kansas, including Manhattan and Topeka, missed portions of the first half due to technical difficulties.
