Kansas State men's basketball summary for January 22

Kansas State men's basketball summary for January 22

Scott Drew had to figure maybe it wasn't Baylor's night when Kansas State's 6-9 center Makol Mawien banked in a 3-pointer to give the Wildcats their first double-digit lead of the night. Take that back a couple more seasons and KU (16-3 overall, 6-1 Big 12) now has won 13 of its last 17 games decided by three points or fewer.

Brown scored a game-high 34 points of 9-of-16 field goals, including 4-of-8 from 3-point range, and went a ideal 12-of-12 from the free throw line. The Jayhawks also boast a strong record against the line versus Baylor.

Lashann Higgs scored 16 points for Texas, which had lost two of its last three.

In conference play, junior guard Barry Brown has averaged 16.9 points per game, highlighted by a 38-point performance against Oklahoma State.

Heck, a case could even be made for Kansas being unbeaten in Big 12 play if Vick were playing closer to his ceiling.

Kentucky slid out of Monday's latest poll from No. 18 after losses to SC and Florida, snapping a 30-game home winning streak for the Wildcats in Southeastern Conference play. All of this was led by senior point guard Manu Lecomte. The Jayhawks and Bears have gone over the total in six out of their last eight games at Kansas.

Though the Bears switched from a zone to man-to-man defense, the Wildcats were hot from start to finish. But against Baylor, he proved his value - especially when Kansas is struggling to find consistent offense elsewhere.

"I think we were all embarrassed we didn't have more fight to us tonight, the way we started the first and second half", Drew said.

Despite the early lead and shooting over 50 percent from the field in the half, the Bears were able to claw back to draw the lead to just five at the 1:34 mark, as Baylor made an 8-0 run. Lual-Acuil Jr leads in rebounds with 9.6 while Jake Lindsey tops in assists with 3.3 per game.

Women's March Fills Sam Boyd Stadium
More than 300 towns and cities organised anniversary marches and rallies. Democratic Senator, Kirsten Gillibrand, to crowds in D.C. She added: "It's a new era of feminism".

Terry Maston, King McClure and Nuni Omot sparked an 11-0 run that got the Bears back in at 73-66, but Brown answered with a dagger 3.

"I still believe in myself, I'm still a good shooter", said Lecomte, who shot just 20.5 percent from 3-point range in the first five Big 12 games. Wade leads in rebounds with 6.5 while Stokes tops in assists with 4.6 per game.

K-State player to watch: Cartier Diarra. They couldn't and didn't miss early. With Baylor lingering, the Wildcats went to their leading scorer.

Since the 16-point loss to Texas Tech on January 6, the Wildcats have gone 3-1, and could have easily been 4-0 as they lost to KU by just one point.

On the ensuing Wildcat possession, Diarra drove the lane and connected on a jumper surrounding by the Baylor bigs. Brown would feed Wade for another dunk to bring the lead to 62-49 with 11:46 remaining.

Baylor wasn't as effective in turning points into turnovers - 13 points from turnovers, compared to Kansas State's 20.

Right now there are six teams in the Big 12 in line to get into the NCAA Tournament, according to this week's Busting Brackets Bracketology. Michigan State, West Virginia, Xavier, Cincinnati and reigning national champion North Carolina rounded out the top 10, which saw three teams - Oklahoma, Wichita State and Texas Tech - each lose twice last week to take big tumbles.

Texas: The 51-point margin of victory broke the Longhorns' previous Big 12 record, which was 43 in an 83-40 win over Colorado on February 23, 2005.
