It was an exciting night in Ames as the Cyclones played, arguably, their biggest game of the season.

Last time Iowa State played Oklahoma State they didn’t show up to play, this time around the Cyclones knew their NCAA tournament hopes were riding on a win.

Before the game got underway Hilton Coliseum was filled with emotion as the team's six seniors were honored for their final home game.

The Cyclones were a totally different team this time around coming out of the gate strong and keeping the lead at the half.

The Cowboys didn’t have an answer; it was a major win for the Cyclones, 87-76.

Tournament dreams are that much closer, but one more win will remove all doubt.
