MANHATTAN, Kan. -- Jacob Pullen scored a career-high 38 points and Kansas State shot 56 percent from the field Monday night en route to a stunning 84-68 victory over Kansas, which moved to No. 1 just hours earlier.
Pullen, a 6-foot senior who ranks in the top-5 in 17 career categories for Kansas State, had 23 points in a take-charge first half that propelled the Wildcats (17-9, 5-6 Big 12) to a nine-point halftime lead.
Hundreds of fans stormed the court when the buzzer sounded on Kansas State's third victory in its last 45 games against an archrival that has dominated the Wildcats for decades.
The Jayhawks (24-2, 9-2) replaced Ohio State atop the Associated Press poll, a position they held for 15 weeks last season.
Kansas beat Kansas State 90-66 on Jan. 29, but this time the Wildcats, led by an indomitable Pullen, took control from the start.
