MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) -Jamar Samuels scored 15 of his 20 points in a dominating first half and No. 10 Kansas State withstood a gut check rally to knock off top-ranked Texas 71-62 on Monday night.
Kansas State (16-2, 3-1 Big 12) smothered Texas with its extended man-to-man defense to overcome a 1-of-12 effort from 3-point range and held on to beat a No. 1 team for the third time in school history.
Curtis Kelly scored 17 points and freshman Rodney McGruder added 11 for the Wildcats, who used a late 11-1 run to take control in their record 14th straight win at Bramlage Coliseum.
Texas (17-1, 3-0) trailed by 14 points in the first half, made a run early in the second, but couldn't keep it going in its second week ever at No. 1. The loss leaves No. 2 Kentucky (18-0) as the lone unbeaten team in Division I.

Notre Dame (14-5, 3-3) used an 8-1 run to close to 55-53 on two free throws, but the Orange later went on a 6-0 run to go up 65-56.
