McGruder helped K-State extend its winning streak to five games with victories over South Dakota (70-50) and No. 22/21 Oklahoma State (73-67).

He also averaged 7.0 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 2.0 steals in 36.5 minutes per contest.

It was McGruder's 16th career 20-point effort as he reached double figures in his team-best 10th outing, including five in a row.
