MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Kamau Stokes and Barry Brown combined to hit seven of Kansas State’s season-high 10 3-pointers, and the Wildcats notched their first Big 12 victory with an 83-70 win over Texas Tech on Tuesday night.

Stokes and Wesley Iwundu led the Wildcats (11-5, 1-3) with 17 points apiece, part of an offensive clinic that also saw Brown finish with 15 points. Five Wildcats finished in double figures.

Brown helped fend off a comeback bid by the Red Raiders — who cut into a 16-point halftime deficit to trail 59-54 with 9:42 to play — by capping an 11-0 run that spanned 1:48 with an emphatic, reverse dunk in transition.

Justin Gray scored 23 points to go along with eight rebounds for Texas Tech (11-4, 1-3).
