Controversy doesn't even begin to describe Oklahoma's loss to Kansas State in Manhattan on Saturday night. Phanton fouls, questionable calls, and a free throw discrepancy that brings conspiracy theorists out of the woodwork were far too much for Oklahoma to overcome. Couple that with 3-17 shooting from beyond the arch and getting outrebounded by a margin of 36-27 and it's a miracle that the Sooners lost by just three points. Here are a few things that you may have missed during the game because you were yelling at the refs.

* Kansas State made just 13 of 49 (26.5%) shots from the floor for the entire game but also made 28 of 36 free throw attempts.

*  Marcus Foster's three-point shot with five seconds left was just about identical to the one he buried the Sooners on in Norman just over a month ago.

* After taking a 35-26 lead two minutes into the second half, Kansas State went on a 13-2 run.

* A 10-3 run by Oklahoma allowed them to tie the game at 56-56 and then Jordan Woodard missed a layup that would have given the Sooners the lead.

* Kansas State's 36 free throws were the most any opponent has shot against the Sooners this season. Previously it was West Virginia with 26 on January 13.

* Buddy Hield (14 points) and TaShawn Thomas (10 points) were the only Oklahoma players to score in double figures.

* Despite playing just 23 minutes, Ryan Spangler led the team with 7 rebounds. He also saw his streak of double-figure scoring end at nine games.

* The 36-27 rebounding edge for K-State was the largest deficit of the season for Oklahoma on the boards.

* Thanks to their rebounding advantage, the Wildcats outscored Oklahoma 15-7 in second chance points.
