ISU BASKETBALL: Longest Home Streak
With Kansas losing to Oklahoma State, the Cyclones now own the longest home winning streak in the Big 12, 18 games.
Saturday night they took on Baylor, a team Iowa State has never lost to in Ames.
A perfect 10 and zero against the Bears at Hilton, the Cyclones were hoping to make it 11 in front of a sold out crowd.
1st half, with good play by Korie Lucious, to the rack and high off the glass, gives the Clones a 1 point lead at the break.
2nd half, Will Clyburn starts to heat up with a deep 3. Double double for Will adding to ISU’s lead making it 50-49.
Clyburn continues to add to the tally ending with 28.
Cyclones now tied for 3rd in the Big 12 with win #19 in a row at home after a 79-71 over Baylor.
Hoiberg is happy, “This was a huge game for us. We felt we should have won the other night against Oklahoma State. Obviously, some tough things happened to us on the stretch but our guys battled back once again and they’ve continued to do that.”
