FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) – Thomas Gipson scored 19 points, Marcus Foster added 16 and No. 25 Kansas State ran its winning streak to 10 games with a 65-47 victory over TCU Tuesday night.
The Wildcats (12-3, 2-0 Big 12), who made their way into the Top 25 for the first time this season on Monday, played their first true road game of the season.
Amric Fields scored 14 points and Kyan Anderson added 12 for TCU (9-5, 0-2), which trailed 31-21 at halftime.
The Horned Frogs used a 10-2 run to get within 36-33 with 13:45 to play, but Kansas State responded with a 9-3 run – keyed by a wide open 3 pointer by Shane Southwell – and the Wildcats’ lead wouldn’t dip below seven points for the rest of the game.
Foster, the Big 12 newcomer of the week, hit two 3 pointers in a one minute span late in the second half. The Wildcats hit 7 of 15 3 pointers overall.
TCU, which is 6-1 this season when outrebounding its opponent, were pounded on the glass, with Kansas State finishing with a 37-21 advantage.
