    MANHATTAN, Kan. -- Jamar Samuels scored 15 points to lead Kansas State to a 83-57 win over Idaho State on Saturday.

    Jacob Pullen added 12 for the Wildcats (10-3).

    Matt Stucki and Phyllip Taylor led the Bengals (4-11) with 13 and 10 points respectively.

    The Bengals struck first on a layup by Stucki, but back-to-back 3-pointers by Pullen gave the Wildcats the lead for good.

    After falling behind 25-13, Idaho State narrowed the gap to eight, but scored just five points in the final 9:30.

    Kansas State ended the half on an 8-1 run to take a 40-22 lead into intermission.

    Stucki opened the second half with a pair of free throws, but Kansas State responded with a 9-1 run to push its lead to 49-25.

    The Bengals got within 18 on a 9-3 run midway through the half, but a pair of free throws by Pullen extinguished the comeback attempt.
