MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) - Kindred Wesemann scored 16 points and Kansas State made 12 of 18 free throws in the fourth quarter to turn back No. 23 Auburn 71-66 in the SEC/Big 12 Challenge on Thursday night.

Auburn, ranked for the first time since the final poll of the 2008-09 season, used a 10-0 run, capped by four free throws by Katie Frerking, to take a 62-57 lead with 5:09 to play.

Shaelyn Martin’s 3 then started a 10-2 run for Kansas State for a 67-63 lead at 1:48. After Brandy Montgomery’s 3 made it a one-point game, Breanna Lewis followed her own shot and Martin made 1 of 2 free throws after an Auburn miss. The Tigers missed a pair of 3s before the teams traded turnovers and Martin capped the scoring with a free throw with five seconds left.

Lewis finished with 13 points and nine rebounds as the Wildcats (7-0) had a 39-26 rebounding advantage.

Frerking finished with 22 points and Janiah McKay added 15 for the Tigers (6-2), who had three players foul out.
