MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Jacob Pullen broke the school record for career 3-pointers, leading No. 5 Kansas State to an easy 85-61 victory over Division II Emporia State on Monday night and giving the Wildcats their first six-win month of November.
The senior guard scored 20 points, including hitting four 3s, as the Wildcats jumped out to a 46-27 halftime lead. The Wildcats (6-1) cruised the rest of the way.
Pullen broke Steve Henson’s record of 240 3-pointers.
Asprilla finished with 17 points and eight rebounds for Kansas State. Rodney McGruder also had 17 points.
Emporia State, which lost to No. 4 Kansas 90-59 in an exhibition game this season, was led by Xavier Burnette’s 18 points.
No. 11 Baylor 90, Prairie View 45
WACO, Texas (AP) — LaceDarius Dunn had 20 points in his second game back for Baylor while freshman Perry Jones had 16 points and 13 rebounds and the Bears beat Prairie View.
Dunn hit a 3-pointer on the first shot of the game and Baylor (5-0) never trailed.
Baylor improved to 38-0 against Southwestern Athletic Conference teams, 3-0 this season. The Bears have won 16 of those games by at least 30 points.
Trant Simpson had 10 points and was the only player in double figures for Prairie View (1-7), which shot only 25 percent (15 of 59) and made only 3-of-17 3-pointers.
Dunn was 7-of-13 shooting with three 3-pointers. Quincy Acy added 13 points for Baylor and Nolan Dennis had 10.
Virginia 87, No. 15 Minnesota 79
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Mustapha Farrakhan scored a career-high 23 points and Mike Scott had 17 points and 12 rebounds to lead Virginia to a victory over Minnesota.
Joe Harris scored 24 points and the Cavaliers (4-3) made 10 of 13 3-pointers to erase a 13-point first-half deficit and hand the Golden Gophers (6-1) their first loss of the season.
Trevor Mbakwe had 18 points, 11 rebounds and five blocks for Minnesota. But the Gophers scored just two points during a seven-minute span of the second half and couldn’t complete a furious rally in the final 5 minutes.
Mbakwe’s putback cut Virginia’s lead to 73-67 with 2 minutes to play, but Scott responded with a three-point play to put the game out of reach.
