MANHATTEN, Kan. -

Rodney McGruder, who played his high school basketball at Arlington Country Day, had 16 points and three rebounds to lead Kansas State to a 74-55 win over North Florida on Sunday afternoon.

Playing a team they nearly lost to a year ago, the Wildcats looked like a better team this time around. Despite needing overtime to beat the Ospreys last season, this time around, the contest was never in serious doubt.

Kansas State (4-0) opened the game on a 12-4 run with six points each from McGruder and Nino Williams, and led 16-6 with 13:23 to play in the first half. A 7-2 run helped the Wildcats go-ahead 23-9 and never looked back.

Beau Beech led North Florida (1-3) with 15 points and seven rebounds.
