MANHATTAN, Kan. - Will Spradling scored 19 points and No. 14 Kansas State used a big first-half run to beat West Virginia 71-61 on Monday night, ruining the return of Mountaineers coach Bob Huggins to the school he helped rebuild.

Nino Williams had 13 points, and Angel Rodriguez added 11 points and seven assists for the Wildcats (21-5, 10-3). They slipped into first place in the Big 12 by a half game over ninth-ranked Kansas and No. 14 Oklahoma State.

Deniz Kilicli had 14 points for the Mountaineers (13-13, 6-7), but the rest of their starters combined for 13 points, with two of them getting shut out.

Huggins received a warm reception in his first trip back to Bramlage Coliseum, where he went 23-12 as coach of the Wildcats during the 2006-07 season. Huggins led the program to the NIT, its first postseason appearance in eight years, before leaving for his alma mater.
