Tyon Grant-Foster drove for the go-ahead basket with just over a minute to go, then swatted away Sam Griesel's layup with 10 seconds left, helping seventh-ranked Kansas escape with a 65-61 victory over North Dakota State on Saturday. Jalen Wilson had 14 points and Ochai Agbaji added 13, including a free throw in the final seconds that helped the Jayhawks (4-1) finish off a 7-0 run to end the game and avoid their first loss to an unranked team since the 2019 Big 12 Tournament. Kansas trailed 61-60 when Grant-Foster, its high-scoring junior college transfer, skated to the basket for an easy layup.
