Olukemi leads OSU past No. 17 K-State 76-62

Jean-Paul Olukemi scored a career-high
22 points in his Big 12 debut and fueled a big second-half run as
Oklahoma State raced past No. 17 Kansas State 76-62 Saturday to
knock off the Wildcats for the second straight year.
Olukemi provided 11 points during a 27-7 surge that propelled
the Cowboys (13-2, 1-0 Big 12) into the lead while Kansas State
(12-4, 0-1) failed to score a basket for nearly eight minutes.
Preseason All-America guard Jacob Pullen scored 20 points and
Rodney McGruder added 19 to lead the Wildcats as the preseason
conference favorites played their fifth straight game without
suspended No. 2 scorer Curtis Kelly.
K-State had its top four remaining frontcourt players foul out,
and no one was able to make up for the absence of Kelly.
