K-State handles Columbia 81-71


TheBigE will be along tomorrow morning with a full recap and analysis. For now, know that the Wildcats, led by Justin Edwards and his 19 points, had five players in double figures and shut down Columbia's dangerous 3-point assault.

The Wildcats improve to 2-0 ahead of Friday's game against South Dakota, which might bring back terrifying memories of a 64-62 escape two seasons ago.
