Maryland humbled the Cyclones a week ago, in part, because ISU did not share the basketball. The chemistry looked off. Tuesday night, ISU got back to the "Cyclone Way". Fred Hoiberg praised the 26 assists as the #20 Cyclones routed over-matched Lamar, 96-59.
Matt Thomas led ISU with 14 points. Georges Niang added 13. Bryce Dejean-Jones had the stat-line of the night: 12 points, 10 rebounds, 8 assists, 4 steals, 1 blocked shot.
