MANHATTAN, Kan. — Marcus Garrett scored 14 points, Jalen Wilson added 11 and No. 23 Kansas beat Kansas State 59-41.

The Jayhawks held the Wildcats to a season low in points despite a ho-hum offensive performance.

"I was pleased," said KU head coach Bill Self. "We labored offensively. We got a lot of good looks. We just didn't make them. But we did some good things and I think we're getting better."

Dajuan Gordon scored a team-high 12 points for the Wildcats.

"It's pretty simple," said K-State head coach Bruce Weber. "You go 0-19 from 3 before you hit one. I thought we had some of the most open shots we've had maybe all year and we just couldn't make them."
