MORGANTOWN, W.Va., Jan. 12 (UPI) -- Shane Southwell's late free throws and blocked shot at the buzzer Saturday carried No. 23 Kansas State to a 65-64 victory over West Virginia.

Southwell's free throws with 21.4 seconds remaining put the Jayhawks (13-2, 2-0 Big Ten) ahead for good, and his block of Gary Browne's try for a game-winning lay-up as time was expiring preserved the victory.

Southwell finished with 17 points while Rodney McGruder also provided 17 as the Wildcats won their sixth straight.

Jabarie Hinds paced the Mountaineers (8-7, 1-2) with 15 points.
