    MANHATTAN, Kan. -- Rodney McGruder scored 22 points to lead Kansas State to a 72-53 win over South Carolina-Upstate on Sunday.

    Jodd Maxey scored 13 points for the Spartans (3-5), and Torrey Craig added 12 points. The Spartans struggled to contain Kansas State's forwards throughout the game. Later in the second half, Adrian Diaz added three baskets in quick succession to increase the Wildcats' advantage to 56-31 with 13:21 to play.
