The Cyclones began their basketball rivalry with West Virginia Wednesday night at Hilton Coliseum.

Welcome to the new big 12.

The Cyclones looked good, leading big towards the end, then West Virginia came back and tie it up in the final seconds.

ISU gets one last play in, but they made it count.

Niang drops a basket, Cyclones win 69-67.

This is what Coach Hoiberg had to say on the finale, "I was pretty confident in Georges [Niang], he is as good as finisher as we have on the team. It was a heck of a play by Will [Clyburn] and it was a great role by Georges.”
