MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Jaelyn Glenn’s layup with 2 seconds left lifted No. 7 Kansas State to a 60-58 victory over UCF Saturday afternoon. Glenn caught a three-quarter court pass from Serena Sundell after UCF tied it.

Gregory led Kansas State (22-4, 11-3 Big 12) with 19 points. Eliza Maupin had a double-double with 15 points and 11 rebounds. Sundell and Zyanna Walker had 10 points each.

UCF (12-12, 3-11 Big 12) was led by Kaitlin Peterson with 26 points. Mya Burns added 10 points.

Sundell stretched it to 58-54 with a layup with 28.3 seconds remaining. Peterson’s layup with 20.9 left trimmed it to 58-56. Burns then tied it with 6 seconds left before Glenn’s game-winner.
