College Hoops Go-Round: January 19

Monday night's big result was 10th-ranked Kansas State's 71-62 home win over top-ranked Texas. The Wildcats got 20 points and 12 boards from Jamar Samuels to win a physical game that featured 49 fouls. The Longhorns inability to convert from the charity stripe hurt them in this one, as they only went 9-22 from the line.
