ACD star leads Kansas St. past UNF
McGruder leads Wildcats with 16 points
Rodney McGruder, who played his high school basketball at Arlington Country Day, had 16 points and three rebounds to lead Kansas State to a 74-55 win over North Florida on Sunday afternoon.
Playing a team they nearly lost to a year ago, the Wildcats looked like a better team this time around. Despite needing overtime to beat the Ospreys last season, this time around, the contest was never in serious doubt.
Kansas State (4-0) opened the game on a 12-4 run with six points each from McGruder and Nino Williams, and led 16-6 with 13:23 to play in the first half. A 7-2 run helped the Wildcats go-ahead 23-9 and never looked back.
Beau Beech led North Florida (1-3) with 15 points and seven rebounds.
