Very quietly, without a lot of fanfare, Frank Martin has put together a tight defensive team with some scoring punch and today K State beat 18th ranked UNLV 95-80. They were lead by Jacob Pullen with 28 points including 7 three point hoops. K State was an uncommon 17-23 from behind the arc. They won't always be this hot, but with potent defense and competent offense, this will not be a team that a Big 12 contender really wants to play, especially in Manhattan.
