COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - Rodney McGruder scored 26 points with five 3-pointers to lead Kansas State to a 76-70 win over struggling Texas A&M on Tuesday night.
Texas A&M used a 6-0 run, capped by a jump shot by Dash Harris, to cut Kansas State's lead to 66-63 with about 3 minutes left.
McGruder responded with a 3-pointer before a layup by Harris on the other end. A put-back dunk by Jordan Henriquez and a pair of free throws by Angel Rodriguez stretched the lead to 73-65 with less than a minute remaining.
