Records are set in 85-25 rout

January 08, 2008|From the Associated Press

MANHATTAN, Kan. -- Kansas State set two NCAA records and tied another Monday night by holding Savannah State to one field goal and four points in the second half of an 85-25 rout.

"I've never seen that. That was crazy," Kansas State forward Michael Beasley said. "That just was not good."

Kansas State (10-4) hounded the Tigers on the perimeter and pushed them away from the basket from the opening tip, holding them without a field goal during a seven-minute span of the first half to build a 16-point lead.

But that was nothing.

Savannah State (8-13) missed its first 15 shots of the second half, falling behind, 72-22, and finished the second half one for 23 (4.3%) from the field, breaking the NCAA record for worst shooting percentage and fewest points in a half since the shot clock was first introduced in 1986.

The one field goal by Savannah State also tied the mark for fewest in a half.
