MANHATTAN (AP) — Thomas Gipson scored 13 points and grabbed nine rebounds while Jamar Samuels added 12 points on 7-of-9 free-throw shooting to help Kansas State defeat Maryland-Eastern Shore 92-50 on Tuesday night.
The Wildcats (3-0) led just 36-29 at halftime after shooting 38 percent from the field, but they put the game out of reach in the first eight minutes of the second half with a 28-6 run.
The Hawks (1-4) kept it close early, with Percy Woods and Louis Bell combing to make 4 of 6 tries from 3-point range by midway through the first half. Maryland-Eastern Shore trailed just 25-23 with a little more than five minutes left before the break.
Woods finished with 13 points while Bell added 10.
The Wildcats shot 18 for 23 from the free-throw line.
Rodney McGruder and Martavious Irving scored 11 points each for the Wildcats while Jordan Henriquez grabbed 10 rebounds.
On their first possession of the second half, the Wildcats took a double-digit lead when Gipson scored two points and converted on the ensuing free throw to put the Wildcats up 39-29. That was followed quickly by a 3-pointer from McGruder.
Those baskets were the start of run that eventually gave Kansas State a 64-35 advantage.
After the Hawks made a few baskets, the Wildcats stormed back to put up 16 straight points in just under three minutes. With 5:41 left to play, Kansas State led 83-42.
From there, Kansas State coach Frank Martin gave his starters a break, allowing newer players to carry the Wildcats to a 42-point margin.
