MANHATTAN, Kan. (WIBW) - Previously winless, NCAA Divison II and MIAA member Fort Hays State beat Kansas State 81-68 Tuesday.

The game was an exhibition contest for the Tigers. It counted for the Wildcats, moving K-State to 1-4 on the year. Two of Fort Hays’ three previous losses came to Washburn and Emporia State.

Fort Hays State was without their head coach and one assistant due to COVID-19.

The Wildcats were led in scoring by Mike McGuirl’s 22 points, but couldn’t reliably score from outside. They only made 19 percent of their three-point shots, while Fort Hays State were able to convert nearly 42 percent of their shots.

The Wildcats stay home for their next matchup, against Milwaukee on Friday.
