George Washington vs Kansas State

Kansas St. 69, George Washington 56


MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) - Thomas Gipson had 17 points and 13 rebounds for his first career double-double, Will Spradling added 14 points and Kansas State used a big second-half run to beat George Washington 69-56 on Thursday night.

Jamar Samuels added 10 points and 10 rebounds in his second game since serving a suspension for violating team rules, teaming with Gipson and Jordan Henriquez to give the Wildcats (4-0) an imposing front line. That contributed to 25 second-chance points against their smaller Atlantic 10 opponent.

George Washington (4-2), picked to finish fourth in the A-10, hung around until midway through the second half, when Spradling and company put together a 15-1 run that covered about six minutes.

After beating up on four weak opponents at home, Kansas State now hits the road to face Virginia Tech on Sunday, then plays West Virginia and former coach Bob Huggins on a neutral floor next week.
