Texas Southern pulls off improbable comeback over Kansas State

By Steven J. Gaither

Texas Southern is at it again. A week after its upset of Michigan State, TSU pulled off an improbable last minute comeback in a 58-56 win over Kansas State.

Texas Southern trailed by four points with 3.8 seconds remaining. Tonnie Collier hit the first two of his free-throw attempts and Chris Thomas scored on a putback attempt after the miss on the third, tying the game at 56 with .9 seconds left. Kansas State then threw the ball away, and TSU’s Jason Carter scored the game-winner as time expired.

The win marked the second time in a week Texas Southern picked up a win against a 2014 NCAA Tournament team. Chris Thomas and Mardarious Gibbs led TSU (3-9) with 15 points each.
