With a few minutes remaining this game was closer this it should have been. Kansas State, a 13.5 point favorite, was only beating Iowa State by a couple of points as the Cyclones chipped away at the lead. As they have been in their five-game winning streak coming into this game, Kansas State was the tougher team down the stretch.
The Kansas State Wildcats beat the Iowa State Cyclones, 67-55, in the final regular season game of the year.
Jacob Pullen was Jacob Pullen scoring 17 points including 2-of-4 from three-point land and 7-of-8 from the free throw line. Curtis Kelly added 13 points and eight boards in another solid effort for him while Will Spradling had an impressive game with 13 points, five rebounds, four assists and two steals.
Iowa State's Diante Garrett had 18 points playing all 40 minutes of the game while Scott Chrispherson went 1-of-12 from the field scoring just five points. 12 shots and just five points? That's not good.
K-State finishes the season 22-9 and 10-6 in the Big 12. This comes after a miserable start for the Wildcats as they, at one point, sat at 16-9 on the season and 4-6 in the Big 12. That's an ugly record and certainly not an NCAA tournament team record so K-State got their act together and suddenly they're a dangerous tournament team.
