Around The NCAA Tournament
Player of the game: K-State guard Rodney McGruder finished with 24 points and seven rebounds -- including eight points during a 10-0 second half run that gave his team a double-digit cushion for good.
X factor: Texas guard Myck Kabongo, who had averaged 15.8 points, 5.3 assists and 5.3 rebounds in the nine games since his return from an NCAA suspension, had seven assists and five rebounds -- but he missed all five of his shots and recorded only two points.
Miscellaneous: K-State had been working on trying to sharpen its defense, and it showed. The Longhorns shot only 34 percent and made only 26.3 percent of its 3-pointers.
