KANSAS CITY - Once again the Iowa State Cyclones fell behind by double digits, but once again ISU rallied for another win.

The Cyclones held off Oklahoma 67-65 to advance to the Big 12 championship for the 2nd straight year.

Georges Niang led ISU with 13 points, Jameel McKay added 12, Monte Morris chipped in 11.

Iowa State fell behind by 11 points in the first half but battled back to tie it at 29 at the half.  The 2nd half was back and forth, a free throw by Niang with 9 seconds left gave the Cyclones a 2 point lead.

The Sooners had 1 final look but Ryan Spangler missed  wide open layup letting ISU celebrate again in dramatic fashion.

That sets up a Big 12 championship between Iowa State and Kansas, the best rivalry in the Big 12.  Tipoff is set for 5:00 Saturday night from KC.
