Jacob Pullen was suspended for three games for receiving impermissible benefits and made his return to the Kansas State Wildcats lineup on Monday night in a 92-61 victory over Savannah State. Pullen scored 24 points and had five assists in the victory. His teammate, Curtis Kelly, was also suspended but received a six-game ban so he's still out.
Kansas State had a balanced attack in the 31-point victory. Rodney McGruder put up 15 points while Wally Judge added 13 points and 14 boards. Jamar Samuels also had 11 points.
Savannah State falls to 0-12 in true road games this year.
Kansas State allowed Savannah State to hang around until about halfway through the first half when they went on a 16-5 run pulling away. The Wildcats controlled the game from there as they held an 11-point lead with 15 minutes left in the game before going on another big 18-5 run.
Kansas State now enters conference play as they travel to Oklahoma State this weekend. After the following game against Colorado the Wildcats will see the return of Curtis Kelly.
