MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) – Shane Southwell had 13 points and Kansas State overcame a huge game by Iowa State star Melvin Ejim to beat the 15th-ranked Cyclones 80-73 on Saturday night.

Thomas Gipson and D.J. Johnson added 12 points apiece for the Wildcats (20-9, 10-6 Big 12), who can still earn the No. 2 seed in the conference tournament. They play at Oklahoma State on Monday and then host Baylor on Saturday to end the regular season.

Kansas State has won 15 straight at Bramlage Coliseum, its longest home winning streak since the 1981-82 season.

Ejim had 30 points and 16 rebounds, and DeAndre Kane added 24 points and eight rebounds to pace the Cyclones (22-6, 10-6).
