by Barca Blog - No. 5 seed Kansas State.... who eliminated No. 12 seed Drexel 68-44 last night at The Pit.
Similar to the Commodores' win over Western Carolina, the Wildcats (25-7) picked up the pace in the second half to pull away from their NCAA first round opponent.
"At the end of the first half the tempo wasn't good for us. We needed to be more aggressive," Kansas State coach Deb Patterson said. "This group has a good basketball IQ. When they need to change the game, they can."
Forward Marlies Gipson scored a game-high 18 points, while point guard Shalee Lehning tied a school record with 13 assists.
