Kansas State vs. Alabama-Huntsville recap: Wildcats cruise to 87-26 win

Scott Sewell-US PRESSWIRE

Kansas State easily moved to 3-0 on the season with a thorough domination of Alabama Huntsville on Tuesday night.

First-year coach Bruce Weber earned his third straight win on Tuesday night in Manhattan, as the Kansas State Wildcats hardly needed to break a sweat to pick up a 87-26 victory over Alabama Huntsville.

After opening up the game with a 17-2 run, the Wildcats went on to take a 47-11 lead into the locker room with game's outcome already decided. Kansas State shooting guard Rodney McGruder led all starters with 11 points, while teammates Will Spradling and Angel Rodriguez each chipped in 10 points apiece with a pair of three-pointers. Rodriguez's six assists also set a game-high, and actually tied Alabama Huntsville's six total assists as a team on the evening. Shane Southwell scored 16 points for Kansas St. off the bench, in 20 minutes on the court.

Along with producing a meager 26 points on just 16.4 percent shooting, Alabama Huntsville also coughed up the ball 13times and made just three of their improbable 33 attempts from the perimeter. Huntsville forward Conner Blasi was the only player who attempted a shot to finish with a field goal percentage above 25 percent, while senior guards Jaime Smith and Xavier Baldwin combined to shoot a woeful 2-of-19 from the floor.
