Kansas was already playing without reserve forward Jamari Traylor, whom Self sat for disciplinary reasons. With the nagging injury to Black on top of the foul trouble, one of the deepest teams in the nation had its depth tested in one of the rare instances all season.
"Both teams are beat up," Self said afterward.
After taking a 35-34 lead with 17:34 remaining, the Wildcats ripped off the next nine points. And even when Foster turned his ankle and briefly went to the locker room, Kansas State was still able to match the Jayhawks basket for basket.
The Wildcats couldn't close the game in regulation, though.
Given a second chance in overtime, they finally did.
"We made mistakes," Weber said. "To their credit they came back, but our character, and that's something we talked about, let us overcome the emotion."
