Wildcats (17-6, 6-5 Big 12).
     Luke Adams, a 5-foot-9-freshman, scored 15 points for the Red
Raiders (7-16, 0-11).

half. Kansas State shot 6 of 26 (23.1 percent) in the half but led
31-17 at the break. Midway through the first half, there was a
stretch of more than five minutes where neither team scored.

the first half and did not make its first basket of the second half
until Jaye Crockett sank a baseline jumper with 10:11 remaining.
     The Red Raiders cut the lead to 50-40 with 2:53 remaining after
an 18-3 run that featured three Adams 3-pointers, but Kansas State
regrouped and pulled away.
