K-State advances to NIT final
NOV 21, 2012 8:46p ET
The Wildcats (5-0) overcame 32 points by Devon Saddler and will play No. 4 Michigan in the final of the NIT Season Tipoff.
After Spradling's free throws with 9.6 seconds left, Angel Rodriguez fouled Saddler as he attempted a 3-pointer with a second left. Saddler missed the first shot, made the second and intentionally missed the third, but the Blue Hens (2-2) couldn't corral the high rebound.
Saddler made three 3-pointers down the stretch to put pressure on the Wildcats, who led by 11 midway through the second half.
Rodriguez and Thomas Gipson also scored 12 points apiece for the Wildcats.
Jamelle Hagins had 15 rebounds and 12 points for Delaware, but was ineffective after a second-half leg injury.
