MANHATTAN, Kan. -- Elijah Lee and the rest of the Kansas State defense trudged to the locker room at halftime against Texas Tech on Saturday night fortunate to be ahead.Then, the Wildcats made a solemn vow.Second half, the veteran linebacker said, with sternness to his voice, we had the mindset that they cant do to us what they did to us in the first half.They proceeded to shut down Patrick Mahomes and the Red Raiders over the final 30 minutes, holding on for a 44-38 victory highlighted by touchdowns in all three phases of the game.Texas Tech only scored 10 points in the second half, seven coming in the games final minute.We came together as a defensive unit and we were like, `We have to eliminate all the big plays, Kansas State cornerback Duke Shelley said. This game was on us.Mahomes, despite an ailing shoulder, still threw for 504 yards and two touchdowns while running for three more scores. But the Red Raiders junior quarterback also threw a pick that was returned for seven and failed to convert three fourth downs in the second half.He also failed to get off a throw to the end zone from midfield on the final play of the games.Hes a tough kid, said Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury, who acknowledged Mahomes did not practice fully this week. We wouldnt put him out there if he couldnt handle it.Still, the result was the 196th win for Kansas States Bill Snyder, and it came in his 300th game leading the Wildcats. It also came day after the Hall of Fame coachs 77th birthday.Not that he was in much of a mood to enjoy it.Snyder was terse in his postgame comments, particularly when asked about burning through his three timeouts in the second half. But he was proud of the way his defense performed in the second half.They got a ton of yardage, Snyder said. We put them in some fourth down situations, which was good, because they didnt convert any.Indeed, the teams waged a back-and-forth offensive showdown in the first half with Pringles TD return giving the Wildcats a 31-28 advantage with 1:31 left before the break. But it wasnt until the Red Raiders chose to go for it on fourth down -- twice -- in the third quarter that the game pivoted.The first came inside the Kansas State 5 on the first possession of the second half, when a field goal would have tied the game. The second came later in the third quarter, when a sack gave the Wildcats the ball at the Texas Tech 47 -- and set them up for a touchdown that made it 38-31.Trying to be aggressive, Kinsbury said. We felt like we had a chance there with the play calls that we liked. They made a good play on the ball, just didnt go our way.The Red Raiders finally did punt on fourth-and-1 at their own 34 early in the fourth quarter, but their defense allowed Kansas State to go 71 yards for a field goal that made it a two-possession game.Texas Tech failed to convert another fourth down a few minutes later, the Wildcats added one more field goal, and not even a late touchdown by the Red Raiders was enough to change the outcome.GUT PUNCHPringle was playfully -- maybe? -- punched in the gut by teammate Dominique Heath while celebrating his kickoff return touchdown. He crumpled to the ground and lay there for a moment, and said afterward that the uppercut knocked the wind out of him. Im feeling good now, he said.THE TAKEAWAYTexas Tech: The Red Raiders can score with anybody, but they also can allow anybody to score with them. Kansas State barely sniffed the end zone in a 17-16 loss to West Virginia last week.Kansas State: The Wildcats, tops in the Big 12 defensively entering the game, allowed Texas Tech to go 6-of-7 on third downs in the first half. They went 3-of-9 in the second half.UP NEXTTexas Tech: West Virginia visits Lubbock, Texas, on Saturday.Kansas State: No. 20 Oklahoma awaits the Wildcats on Saturday.

But the quarterback hopes to stay involved in football after officially calling it quits Tuesday. "Id love to look at those opportunities as they arise," Pierce said in an interview from his Winnipeg eatery. Saucony Shadow 5000 Uomo . James, who turned 29 on Monday, injured his groin Friday during the Heats overtime loss at Sacramento. He sat out the following game, a 108-107 win Saturday in Portland, before coming back to help send the Nuggets to their seventh consecutive loss. South Africas captain Faf du Plessis is expected to play the Adelaide Test, as legal machinations behind his hearing for a ball-tampering charge delay proceedings until after the series against Australia.On a day when a television reporter attempted to question du Plessis at Adelaide airport by pushing into the group of players and was shoulder charged out of the way by South Africas security manager, it emerged that the ICC hearing is not likely to happen before the third Test is over.A major reason for the delay is Cricket South Africa saying they have engaged legal representation for du Plessis ahead of the hearing. This takes proceedings outside the usual territory, in which a player and team management deals directly with the relevant ICC match referee, and calls for the governing body to also engage lawyers.While it is understood that CSAs legal representative may arrive in Adelaide on Tuesday and there is some chance of the hearing taking place on Wednesday, it could end up occurring in South Africa, with the squad due to depart for home immediately after the end of the day-night match.The convention of engaging lawyers if necessary has been in place ever since former Sri Lanka captain Arjuna Rantunga brought lawyers to a hearing in Perth after he was charged with bringing the game into disrepute. He was accused of holding up play after Muttiah Muralitharan was called for throwing by umpire Ross Emerson during an ODI in Adelaide in January 1999.The match referee for that series, Peter van der Merwe, was left to give Ranatunga a watered-down suspended sentence after being threatened with legal action, and the ICC have treaded more carefully with contested charges ever since - ensuring match referees are supported by legal opinion if required.Despite winning the series in Australia in emphatic fashion, South Africas indignation at du Plessis charge for ball tampering has dominated the past few days. From the moment Hashim Amla spoke to the press in Melbourne on Friday with the eentire squad behind him, South Africa have taken on a pugilistic mentality.ddddddddddddThis was summed up on Monday in Adelaide, when the teams security manager Zunaid Wadee twice bundled a reporter out of the way as du Plessis walked through the airport. Reporters had been advised that crews were welcome to shoot vision but not to chase interviews. The footage quickly spread via social media.South Africas tour manager Mohammed Moosajee released a statement defending Wadees actions. The Australian media and Channel 9 News in particular have been advised on numerous occasions over the past few days that Cricket South Africa and captain, Faf du Plessis, are not in a position to comment on the alleged ball-tampering issue, he said.However, despite our best intentions to co-operate with the Australian media, Channel 9 News behaviour has been disappointing. We have advised of our media protocol which has been blatantly ignored, both at the teams hotel on Friday and Saturday and again at the airport in Adelaide today. This is the third incident of a reporter aggressively harassing our players with blatant disrespect of the above-mentioned media protocol.The reporter at the airport disrespected us and continued to harass Faf for comment. The reporter was also in the unusual position of being in the middle of the players walkway to the bus. He was advised to move three times, and did not adhere to this request. The reporter, who also had no official accreditation, then proceeded to lunge towards Faf with an unknown object causing a direct breach of security protocol. The reporter also shoved the team manager in the back.Throughout the tour we have respected all our media obligations and treated media with utmost respect. At the same time, we would like to see this respect reciprocated and will not accept such behaviour as displayed by the Channel 9 News reporter.
