MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) - Rodney McGruder scored 26 points and Thomas Gipson added 14 points and 12 rebounds as Kansas State defeated Texas Southern 78-69 on Tuesday night.

Ray Penn had 24 points for Texas Southern, and Omar Strong and Madarious Gibbs added 13 points each.

A 7-0 run by the Wildcats - five of the points were by McGruder - gave them a 46-36 lead with 15:03 remaining. It was the first double-digit advantage of the game.

The lead grew to 53-38 with 12 minutes to play. But Texas Southern went on a 10-2 spurt that included 3-pointers by Penn and Gibbs.

With 7:40 left, Texas Southern trailed 55-48 and hung in until the final minute.
