A quick first-half recap:
The Wildcats beat GU’s defense down court several times, once after the Bulldogs made a free throw. Late in the half, Gray connected in the lane, but Kansas State’s Jacob Pullen drove the length of the court and fed Victor Ojeleye for an open 3-pointer.
The Wildcats shot 53.1 percent from the floor, 9 of 15 on 3-pointers, to move on top 49-38 at half. The margin would have been wider if not for
Robert Sacre and Steven Gray combined for 25 first-half points. Jacob Pullen and Will Spradling each had 11 for the Wildcats. Those two were 5 of 9 on 3-pointers.
