The Wildcats also scored 14 of the first 18 points between the two teams in the second half to take a double-digit lead and never looked back... K-State streak extended to 22-8 during the first 9:40 of the second half.

Kansas State held Iowa State to just 47 points, 18 points below its season average of 65...
