NEW YORK (AP) -- Shane Southwell matched his career high with 19 points and Kansas State won its seventh straight, cruising past Tulane 72-41 on Saturday night in the Brooklyn Hoops Winter Festival at Barclays Center.

The Wildcats (9-3) continued their fine defensive play of late. In the first six games of the winning streak they held opponents to 52.8 points on 38.0 percent shooting from the field and those numbers improved Saturday.

Tulane (7-7), which had won its last two games, had plenty of trouble with Kansas State, finishing with a season low in points (the previous was 52 in a loss to Texas State) and shooting percentage (28.6 percent on 12 of 42).

Nigel Johnson added 13 points for the Wildcats, including seven in a 12-1 run that gave Kansas State a 55-29 lead with 9:50 to play.
