MANHATTAN, Kansas (AP) - Kamau Stokes and Justin Edwards scored 13 points apiece, and Kansas State hit nine 3-pointers to help snap a two-game losing streak, topping Oklahoma State 89-73 on Saturday.

Dean Wade and Wesley Iwundu finished with 12 points apiece, and Stephen Hurt added 11 points and five rebounds.

Lackluster shooting had plagued Kansas State (12-7, 2-5) in Big 12 play so far, but it was the 3-point ball that propelled the Wildcats to a second conference win. The Wildcats converted 9 of 17 3-point attempts, led by Stokes with four makes.

Even when the deep ball wasn't connecting, Kansas State still found a way to score. D.J. Johnson rose above two Oklahoma State defenders to throw down an emphatic put-back dunk with 13:02 to play after Barry Brown missed a 3-point attempt.

Tyree Griffin led Oklahoma State (10-9, 2-5) with 18 points and five assists.
