Kansas State beats WVU in Huggins' return to Manhattan

Manhattan, KS (Sports Network) - Will Spradling scored 19 points to help Kansas State spoil Bob Huggins' return to Manhattan with a 71-61 win over West Virginia on Monday.

Huggins, who has coached West Virginia since 2007, served as the Wildcats' head coach for the 2006-07 season. Huggins is credited with resurrecting the Kansas State program after guiding it to a 23-12 finish, its best record since it went 25-9 in 1987-88. That squad became the first major-conference team to be left out of the NCAA tournament after winning at least 20 games.

Nino Williams added 13 points and Angel Rodriguez had 11 points and seven assists for the Wildcats (21-5, 10-3 Big 12), winners in six of their last seven games.

Deniz Kilicli scored 16 points and Aaric Murray added nine points and nine rebounds for the Mountaineers (13-13, 6-7), who have dropped two of their last three games.
