Pullen's Career-Best 34 Was Also Day's Best
There were a number of big efforts and big moments on Saturday, including Ali Farokhmanesh's stunning 3-pointer that helped Northern Iowa bury Kansas, and Omar Samhan's 32 points which led the way for the St. Mary's Gaels to overwhelm Villanova, another shocker.
The day's best, however, occurred in the final game of the day, as Kansas State soared past BYU, 84-72, thanks to the career-high 34 points from Jacob Pullen.
Pullen, who has scored in double figures in every one of K-State's 35 games this season, absolutely blistered the Cougars hitting 7 of 11 3-pointers, 8 of 15 overall and all 11 of his free throws.
