OU never led in the game, falling behind by as many as 11 points in the first half, before trailing halftime 28-22, their lowest scoring half of the season.
K-State built the lead to 16 in the second half, and withstood a late Sooner rally to win by eight.
Oklahoma shot just 35 percent overall and were 4-for-21 from three-point range.
Alondes Williams led OU with 15 points and Austin Reaves was the only other Sooner in double figure scoring with 12 points.
Besides Reaves, OU’s other four starters combined for just 11 points and 3-for-22 shooting from the field.
