No. 12 Kansas State re­mains un­beaten

Orlando Sentinel (Sunday) - - SPORTS SUNDAY -

Dean Wade scored 14 of his 18 points in the sec­ond half and Barry Brown added 16 as No. 12 Kansas State beat Le­high 77-58 on Satur­day in Man­hat­tan Kan.

The Wild­cats (6-0) con­trolled the sec­ond half af­ter the Moun­tain Hawks (4-2) hung around and trailed by just two at half­time.

The Wild­cats' shoot­ing woes at home con­tin­ued: They made just 6 of 20 3-point at­tempts.

James Karnik had 15 points and eight re­bounds for Le­high (4-2), and Pat An­dree scored 12.

Kansas State will take on ar­guably its tough­est test of the sea­son thus far when it trav­els to Mar­quette next Satur­day.

Buf­falo stays per­fect: CJ Mass­in­burg scored 21 points and No. 22 Buf­falo over­came a slow start to beat Marist 76-49 in Amherst, N.Y.

Buf­falo is 5-0 for the first time since 1986-87, when it was a Divi­sion III pro­gram.

Buf­falo av­er­aged more than 88 points over its first four wins, and only Vil­lanova scored in the 80s more times last sea­son. The Bulls matched a school record for points in a Divi­sion I game in Wed­nes­day's 110-71 win over Dart­mouth.

“We knew they were go­ing to try to slow it down,” coach Nate Oats said. “Ev­ery­body does it. No­body wants to try to run with us, so ev­ery­body is go­ing to try to run as much clock as they can.

“I would hate to play like that as a player. That's why I don't coach like that. But that might be the best way for them to try and get a win.”
