For all the bitching coming from the K-State side about not getting to the free throw line. This 'strategy' is probably a huge reason why. If you plan on living behind the arc, you aren't going to draw a lot of fouls. It's not rocket science.

Opinion: Ben McLemore once again shows his huge upside | KUsports.com
But on a night he watched from the bench in foul trouble and too often from the perimeter when in the game, red-shirt freshman Ben McLemore again showed he’s the player on the roster with the most untapped potential.

“Not at all. I just knew I had to go and take my time and make the free throws,” said Tharpe, who hit both to give KU a 58-53 advantage down the stretch. The Jayhawks went on to win, 59-55.

"They're a big-time rival," Self said of K-State. "But when you have Mizzou, all your pent-up hate can go in one direction, basically. So this was more of a respectful rivalry, and I still feel that way. I think it's two teams, classy, playing hard, and there's no talking. There were just kids out there competing. I'm leaving out of here knowing who our biggest rival is, but it's not a hated thing."
