AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Kayla Goth scored 15 points, Peyton Williams posted a double-double and Kansas State overcame a 14-point second-half deficit to upset No. 15 Texas 69-60 on Sunday.
Williams finished with 13 points and 14 rebounds, Jasauen Beard and Rachel Ranke each scored 11 and Kali Jones grabbed 11 rebounds for the Wildcats (16-10, 7-7 Big 12). Kansas State has won three of its last four following a three-game skid.

The Wildcats used a 15-5 run that started when Beard hit a jumper and a layup and they led 27-26 at halftime.
Texas came out hot after intermission with a 16-1 run and led 42-28 when Charli Collier made a layup with 5:18 left in the third. The Wildcats countered with a 17-4 run and ended the quarter down 46-45.
