Angel Rodriguez led K-State past Texas A&M on Saturday in Manhattan. Rodriguez and the Wildcats turned a one-point deficit at halftime into a 64-53 win behind Rodriguez's fearless drives to the basket and a full-court press that led to a turnover barrage from the Dash Harris-less Aggies.
Among the better news to come out of Saturday's game was that Will Spradling finally broke out of his shooting slump. The sophomore had 19 points on 4-5 shooting from three-point range.
An injured toe limited Rodney McGruder's effectiveness, as the junior went 1-9 from the field and scored only five points.
