Sweat's layup lifts Kansas State to 10th straight win

Jan 31, 2008 - 4:11 AM LINCOLN, Nebraska (Ticker) -- Ashley Sweat's layup with five seconds to play lifted No. 21 Kansas State to its 10th straight win, 77-75, over Nebraska in a Big 12 Conference matchup on Wednesday.

Kimberly Dietz had 26 points and Shalee Lehning had 19, eight rebounds and six assists for the Wildcats (15-5, 7-0 Big 12), who were trailing by one with under one minute to play.

Dietz then made a 3-pointer to give Kansas State a 75-73 advantage before Kelsey Griffin tied it up on a jumper with 32 seconds remaining. That set the stage for Sweat, who drove the baseline and scored and the Wildcats saw two Cornhusker shots fall off the mark before the final buzzer.

Sweat finished with 10 points for Kansas State, which shot 51 percent (28-of-55) from the floor.

Danielle Page had 20 points and nine rebounds and Griffin had 19 and 11 for the Cornhuskers (15-6, 4-3), who had a 40-28 advantage in points in the paint, and outscored the Wildcats, 17-5, in second-chance points.
