Kansas State wins over Iowa State

Wildcats win in Ames for first time since 2011

Junior Dean Wade poured in a career-high 34 points, Kamau Stokes added 23 and Kansas State opened Big 12 play by pounding Iowa State 91-75 on Friday night for its first win in Ames since 2011. 

Barry Brown Jr. had 21 points for the Wildcats (11-2, 1-0 Big 12), who shot 13 of 26 from 3-point range to snap Iowa State's nine-game winning streak. 

After a blistering first half that saw K-State jump ahead 53-50, the Wildcats put away the Cyclones (9-3, 0-1) by tightening up their defense. 

Iowa State missed 10 of its first 11 shots in the second half, and Kansas State jumped ahead by 12 on a Xavier Sneed 3. 

Wade's 3, his sixth of the night, made it 75-60 with just fewer than 10 minutes to go. He finished 13-of-16 shooting for the Wildcats, who had dropped their previous four meetings against the Cyclones. 

Lindell Wigginton scored 23 points in his Big 12 debut to lead Iowa State, which committed 13 turnovers and shot just 23 percent in the second half after hitting 68 percent of its shots in the opening frame.
