MANHATTAN, Kan. -- Jamar Samuels scored 19 points and Kansas State defeated Western Illinois 82-50 on Sunday.

Denis Clemente added 13 points for the Wildcats (2-0).

The Leathernecks (0-2) were led by Matt Lander with a game-high 20 points.

An early 7-0 run by Western Illinois gave the Leathernecks a slim 10-7 lead, but a layup by Kansas State's Wally Judge sparked a 14-2 run that put the Wildcats on top for good. Kansas State held the Leathernecks to just four points in the final seven minutes of the first half en route to a 31-20 halftime lead.

The Wildcats closed the door early in the second half, opening the period on an 11-2 run to put the game out of reach for Western Illinois. Kansas State's defense remained solid, holding the Leathernecks to just three field goals after a 2-point bucket by David Gebru with 13:07 remaining in the contest.
