Cyclones Hang On, Beat Kansas State
AMES – It wasn’t pretty at times, and a little tighter than Cyclones fans wanted but it’s a win and they’ll take it.
Iowa State beat Kansas State 77-71 at Hilton Coliseum Tuesday night.
Jameel McKay had another huge game, 15 points, 7 rebounds. Georges Niang added 14. Monte Morris and Abdel Nader each scored 11.
This game was back and forth all night with the Wildcats even leading by 5 in the second half.
Iowa State improves to 14-3 overall, 4-1 in the Big 12.
It’s the best start in conference play for the Cyclones in 15 years. The last time ISU started 4-1 in the Big 12, 1999, the year they went to the Elite 8.
