Holmes’ 3 Lifts Texas Over No. 22 KSU
Jonathan Holmes buried a 3-pointer as time expired to lift Texas to a 67-64 win over No. 22 Kansas State on Tuesday night.
Coming out of a timeout, Texas had the ball with 4.3 seconds left when Holmes received an inbound pass and immediately called another timeout at halfcourt with Kansas State smothering every Texas player on the floor.
Holmes ran baseline on the ensuing play, received the inbound pass from Isaiah Taylor, and this time, knocked down the 3 from the right corner to send the Wildcats home in defeat.
“The first time we ran it, it was going to be a lollipop pass for Javan, which means I was going to screen and he was going to come back and try to get open in the corner, but Demarcus (Holland) called timeout. So, I knew since they were worried about Javan, my man was going to go with him, so I just slipped to the ball and I was open and made the shot,” Holmes said of his shot.
