K-State didn’t let the Tigers upset them again like they did a couple of weeks ago at Mizzou Arena. K-State Freshman Michael Beasley tied a career high 40 points with 17 rebounds as the Wildcats dominated in a 100-63 win over the Tigers.
Beasley leads the nation in rebounding, is fourth in scoring and is one double-double shy of tying Carmelo Anthony’s NCAA freshman record of 22. It was Beasley’s second 40-point game and ninth with at least 30 points. He shot 12-of-22 from the field and 14-of-15 from the free throw line.
One bright spot, Matt Lawrence may have broken out of his slump. He scored 20 points on 6-of-11 3-point shooting to lead the Tigers who are now 4-7 in the Big 12. The Tigers, fall to 2-7 on the road this season.
Jason Horton, who was charged on Friday for third degree midemeanor assault on Friday played 20 minutes.
