COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Rodney McGruder scored 26 points with five 3-pointers to lead Kansas State to a 76-70 win over struggling Texas A&M on Tuesday night.

Texas A&M used a 6-0 run, capped by a jump shot by Dash Harris, to cut Kansas State's lead to 66-63 with about 3 minutes left.

McGruder responded with a 3-pointer before a layup by Harris on the other end. A put-back dunk by Jordan Henriquez and a pair of free throws by Angel Rodriguez stretched the lead to 73-65 with less than a minute remaining.

The victory gave Kansas State (20-9, 9-8 Big 12) 20 wins for the sixth straight season and 25th time in school history.

Elston Turner had 22 points for Texas A&M (13-16, 4-13), which has dropped four in a row.
