Wichita State’s Mack too much for K-State

December 6, 2001


— Wichita State's Troy Mack controlled the paint with 20 points and 10 rebounds to give the Shockers a 65-56 win over Kansas State on Wednesday night.

The Wildcats came back from an eight-point halftime deficit to lead 47-43 with about eight minutes to play.

But Wichita State (4-3) stopped the Wildcats with a zone and then let Mack go to work.

He scored seven straight points to ignite a late 12-0 run and Rob Kampman hit a 3-pointer with four minutes to secure Wichita State's second straight victory over its intrastate rival.

"Mack was the difference," said Kansas State coach Jim Wooldridge.

Gilson DeJesus hit his fifth 3-pointer of the season to get Kansas State within four.

But Kansas State fouled Kampman with 50.9 to go and he hit two free throws to give Wichita State its second road win of the season.
