AMES - After playing the worst half of basketball in the Fred Hoiberg era , 17th ranked Iowa State responded in a big way in the 2nd half.

The Cyclones trailed by as many as 21 in the 2nd half, but outscored the Sooners 59-33  after halftime en-route to a 77-70  win.

Season saver?  Maybe.  Incredible comeback?  Without a doubt.

ISU trailed 37-18 at the half, and was in danger of losing their 3rd straight game.

Georges Niang led the way with 23 points, Monte Morris added 19, Jameel McKay scored 14.  Dustin Hogue scored 7 points and grabbed 10 rebounds in his final game at Hilton Coliseum.

Iowa State improves to 21-8 overall, 11-6 in the Big 12 and is now tied for 2nd in the Big 12 with Oklahoma.
