Kansas State beats Western Illinois 82-50

(AP) — MANHATTAN, Kan. - After spending all of last season at power forward, Jamar Samuels was asked to learn the small forward position in order to make room for Curtis Kelly, a transfer from UConn who sat out last year due to NCAA transfer rules.

Samuels had little trouble at his new position on Sunday as he scored 19 points to lead Kansas State past Western Illinois 82-50.

Samuels was one of five Kansas State players to reach double figures in scoring. Denis Clemente added 13 points, Rodney McGruder and Wally Judge, former high school teammates, each had 11 and Jacob Pullen added 10 for the Wildcats (2-0).
