ST. THOMAS, U.S. Virgin Islands (AP) Dean Wade wanted nothing more than to win a regular-season tournament title for Kansas State coach Bruce Weber.
Wade helped the 12th-ranked Wildcats deliver, scoring 21 points as Kansas State defeated Missouri 82-67 Monday night in the championship game of the Paradise Jam tournament.
The Wildcats (5-0) won their first regular-season tournament championship in four tries under Weber, and Kansas States first since 2011.
