MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) – Thomas Gipson had 16 points and 11 rebounds, Marcus Foster added 13 points and Kansas State used a big second half run to put away TCU 65-53 Wednesday night.
Nino Williams added 11 points and Will Spradling had 10 for the Wildcats (18-8, 8-5 Big 12), who bounced back from a double overtime loss at Baylor over the weekend to match a school record with their 14th consecutive win at Bramlage Coliseum.
The Horned Frogs (9-16, 0-13) actually pulled even with Kansas State midway through the second half, but the Wildcats answered with a 15-2 run to seize control. Most of the damage came in the paint, where Gipson and D.J. Johnson were able to use their size to their advantage.
Kyan Anderson led TCU with 23 points, his fourth straight game of at least 20. Karviar Shepherd added 12 points, but otherwise the junior guard got precious little help.
