Kansas State used a complete team effort, including a team-high 25 points from junior forward Dean Wade, to secure its 10th victory in conference play and 21st win overall in defeating Baylor, 77-67.
K-State secured sole possession of fourth place in the league standings and the No. 4 seed at this week’s Phillips 66 Big 12 Championship at the Sprint Center in Kansas City. For a Wildcat squad picked eighth in the preseason, it was the highest league finish since sharing the Big 12 title in 2012-13.
The Wildcats were efficient on offense, connecting on 52 percent (26-of-50) from the field, including 50 percent or better in each half, and recorded 19 assists on 26 made field goals while turning the ball over just 10 times.
