MANHATTAN, Kan. -- Kansas State has been waiting all season for Denis Clemente to find his shot. The senior has done everything else right, running the offense, distributing, playing solid defense. Just not scoring.Coming off a disappointing loss, Clemente couldn't have picked a better time to break out.Clemente scored 20 of his 24 points in a dominating first half and Kansas State (No. 12 ESPN/USA Today, No. 13 AP) rode its stifling defense to an 88-65 rout over Texas A&M Tuesday night.
• Denis Clemente scored a season-high 24 points and shot over 40 percent (9 for 22) for the first time in five games as the Wildcats won their 13th straight home game.
• Jacob Pullen added 15 points for K-State, which won its 17th straight against unranked opponents.
• For the Aggies, Khris Middleton (16 points, 7 rebounds) led the team in both points and rebounds, but his squad lost for the seventh straight time at Kansas State.
