No. 10 Kansas State Uses Second-Half Surge To Upset No. 1 Texas

Manhattan, KS (Sports Network) – Jamar Samuels poured in 20 points and pulled down 12 rebounds as 10th-ranked Kansas State surged in the second half to send No. 1 Texas to its first loss of the season, 71-62, at Bramlage Coliseum.

Curtis Kelly added 17 points and Jacob Pullen netted 12 for the Wildcats (16-2, 3-1 Big 12), who won their third in a row. It was just their third-ever win against a No. 1 ranked team (3-12) and their first since January 17, 1994 against Kansas.

The loss by the Longhorns (17-1, 3-1) leaves Kentucky as the lone unbeaten team.

Texas, which had the game tied with under seven minutes left, was hurt by going 9-of-22 from the foul line. Avery Bradley led the Longhorns with 11 points, but no other Texas player scored in double figures. Texas finished shooting 36.8 percent from the field.

Longhorns season leading scorer Damion James was limited to nine points on 3- of-12 shooting.
