MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) _ Megan Mahoney had 20 points and nine assists, and teamed with Kendra Wecker to lead seventh-ranked Kansas State’s decisive second-half run in a 92-75 victory Friday over Western Michigan.

Western Michigan (4-3), which got 23 points from Kristin Koetsier, trimmed a growing deficit to eight points with 14:39 left. But Mahoney _ 4-for 5 from beyond the arc _ and Wecker scored five points apiece in a 10-0 run that made it 63-45 with 11:49 remaining.

Wecker finished with 16 points as did Nicole Ohlde, who also had 11 rebounds. Chelsea Domenico had 14 on 4-of-4 shooting from 3-point range, and Amy Dutmer added 12 for Kansas State.

Curleta Harris added 18 points, Casey Rost 14, and Lori Crisman 13 for the Broncos. Maria Jilian had 12 assists for Western Michigan.

The Broncos led 19-17 with 11:47 left in the first half before the Wildcats got going. The Wildcats took a four-point lead then rattled off 14 straight to lead 43-25 with 1:35 remaining in the first half.

Kansas State played without starting guard Laurie Koehn, out with a twisted ankle.
