MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — It has been feast or famine from the perimeter for Texas this season

Wednesday was a feast night for the Longhorns, who gorged themselves to the tune of 14 3-pointers as they won their Big 12 Conference opener for the 15th time in 23 seasons, pushing past short-handed Kansas State in the second half for a 67-47 victory.

Kansas State was without Kamau Stokes, who averages 11.1 points per game. Stokes missed much of last season with a broken ankle and he reinjured it during a morning shooting session and did not dress for the game. The Wildcats already were without Dean Wade, who is recovering for a foot injury.
