    MANHATTAN, Kan. -- Jacob Pullen had 23 points, Jamar Samuels added 18 and Kansas State used a swarming defense to beat Missouri 88-72 Wednesday night.

    Coming off its first conference win on Saturday, Kansas State (13-7, 2-4 Big 12) came out with a swagger, getting the crowd into it early and never letting up.

    The Wildcats disrupted Missouri's offense with traps early and solved the Tigers' full-court pressure late to build a 13-point halftime lead.

    Unlike Saturday, when Colorado rallied to force overtime, Kansas State poured it on, earning a decisive win over a Missouri team off to its best start in 14 years. The Wildcats shot 12-of-22 from 3-point range and held the nation's third-best scoring team 13 points below its average.

    Pullen was 5-for-8 from 3-point range and Fred Brown was 5-for-6 to finish with 17 points.

    DeMarre Carroll led Missouri (17-4, 4-2) with 19 points and Matt Lawrence added 17.
