COLUMBIA, Mo. -- Jeremiah Massey scored 17 points and Kansas State overcame a 19-0 Missouri run Saturday to beat the Tigers 64-53.
Fred Peete added 16 points and Lance Harris 14 for the Wildcats (13-4, 3-3 Big 12).
Jimmy McKinney had 14 points for Missouri (10-10, 2-5), which lost for the fifth time in six games.
The win was the first for Kansas State in Columbia since 1985.
Just as in a 74-54 loss at Kansas State on Jan. 15, Missouri was eager to shoot the 3, no matter how unsuccessful. The Tigers were 5-for-26 from 3-point range two weeks ago and 5-for-29 Saturday.
McKinney scored the game's first seven points and Missouri went ahead 14-2. But Kansas State used a 20-5 to run to take a 28-21 lead and held on for a 28-26 halftime advantage.
The Tigers continued their 19-point run into the second half before enduring a scoreless stretch while Kansas State scored 12 unanswered points to tie it 40-40 with 10:57 to play.
Kansas State went ahead for good on Massey's put-back tip-in with 7:15 to play. The 6-foot-7 senior scored eight of the Wildcats' final 17 points.
