MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) – Kansas State knocked down 11 3-pointers and the Wildcats cruised to a 74-55 win over Prairie View A&M Tuesday night.

While Prairie View struggled from the field, the Wildcats were 11 of 20 from distance and hit five 3-pointers in the second half.

Dean Wade scored a season-high 19 points, hitting 6 of 8 from the field, and grabbed nine rebounds to lead Kansas State (8-1), which remains undefeated at home. Barry Brown and DJ Johnson each finished with 12 points and Kamau Stokes finished with 11.

The Wildcats shot 54.3 percent from the field for the game (25 of 46).

Prairie View (2-7) kept it close in the first half, even taking the lead at one point, but turnovers and poor shooting allowed Kansas State to pull away in the second half.

Daquan Cook led the Panthers with 18 points. Zachary Hamilton added 14.
