The furious Frank Martins rolled to a 82-62 opening-round victory over North Texas.
Kansas State's guard duo of Jacob Pullen and Denis Clemente showed why they're one of the best in the nation. Clemente finished with 17 points, 6 assists, 4 rebounds, two steals and a block. Pullen added 15 points, three assists and three steals.
Forward Curtis Kelly chipped in 15 points, and Dominique Sutton added 12 points and eight rebounds.
Next up for the Wildcats, the jamming Joseph Smiths of BYU, who may be worn out after a double overtime victory over widow's peaked Billy Donovan and his Florida Gators.
