Jacob Pullen played nearly one handed, scoring 20 points and helping Kansas State cement its at-large candidacy with a 75-70 victory over suddenly-skidding, seventh-ranked Texas, 75-70.

Pullen used his right hand to brace his fall on a drive to the rim with 5:55 to play, injuring his right wrist and going to the bench for mere seconds before returning. He used his left hand on several drives following the injury and held his wrist in agony during stoppages in play, but never sat again.

The game was too important to the Wildcats (21-9, 9-6 Big 12), who have awoken from what seemed to be a season-long slumber to post their fifth straight victory. Three of those wins have come over Kansas, Missouri and now Texas. The Wildcats also recorded their first road victory over a Top 10 team since 1994.

Pullen scored 16 of his 20 points in the second half, Rodney McGruder led the way with 22 points and Curtis Kelly chipped in with 15 points and eight rebounds.

Tristan Thompson scored a game-high 26 points with 10 rebounds, Jordan Hamilton donated 14 points and nine rebounds and J’Covan Brown added 11 points for the Longhorns (24-6, 12-3), who have lost two straight and three of four overall.
