Manhattan, KS (Sports Network) - Thomas Gipson led the way with 17 points and seven rebounds as No. 18 Kansas State had an easy time with Texas, 83-57, at Bramlage Coliseum.

Omari Lawrence totaled 12 points, while Angel Rodriguez added 11 with eight assists for the Wildcats (16-4, 5-2 Big 12), who snapped a two-game in- conference losing streak.

"We had two tough losses so we have to practice hard," Lawrence remarked. "We bounced back with a lot of good energy and effort today. We were really productive."
