Kansas Vs. Kansas State Final Score: Jacob Pullen Scores 38 In Wildcats' 84-68 Upset Of No. 1 Jayhawks

The stay atop the polls will be a short one for the Kansas Jayhawks. They stepped onto the court on Monday night against in-state rival Kansas State and never stood a chance. Jacob Pullen and the Kansas State Wildcats played inspired and the Jayhawks seemed unprepared for the onslaught in the 84-68 KSU victory.

Kansas State jumped to a quick double-digit lead in the first half and Kansas never threatened in the second. Pullen went 9-of-17 from the field (5-of-6 on threes) and hit 15 of 19 free throws to make his 38. Rodney McGruder and Jordan Henriquez-Roberts added ten points each in support.

The win is huge for the Wildcats, desperately in need of something to offset a sluggish 4-6 start in Big 12 play. They hardly looked like the team that lost to Colorado in their previous game.

Kansas not only will lose their place atop the rankings but also their chances at winning an outright Big 12 crown. They’re now 9-2 in the conference, behind the 10-0 Texas Longhorns, whom they’ve already lost to and will not play again.

Kansas Vs. Kansas State Score: Jacob Pullen At Season High As Wildcats Maintain Lead

Jacob Pullen and the Kansas State Wildcats continue to pour it on in their attempt to upset newly-minted No. 1 Kansas. Pullen has set a season-high with 30 points and the Wildcat leads the Jayhawks 65-47 with 10:00 left in the 2nd half.

KSU is shooting 58% from the field compare to Kansas’ 46%. The most staggering difference is in three-point shooting where the Wildcats are 4-8 (.500) while the Jawhawks are 2-11 (.182).

Tyrel Reed leads the Jawhawks with 14 points but it’s starting to look like it won’t be nearly enough. The one saving grace is that only one other player on the Wildcats is in double-figures. If they can find a way to shut down Pullen, they might be able to eek back into it.
