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.
No. 5 Syracuse 84, Notre Dame 71
road win in six days.
After shooting 54 percent in the first half, the Orange (18-1, 5-1) shot 44 percent in the second. But they were 20 of 25 from the free throw line in the second half to hold off several runs by the Irish.
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.
Luke Harangody had 31 points and 14 rebounds for the Irish and Tim Abromaitis added 26 points.
