MORGANTOWN, WV – After trailing by just 1 at the half, Iowa State went cold in the 2nd half of their regular season finale, losing to West Virginia 87-76.

Naz Mitrou-Long led the way with 22 in the loss, Monte Morris added 17.

The loss knocks ISU out of the #2 spot in the Big 12 tournament.  The Cyclones will either be the 3 or 4 seed, depending on the outcome in Saturday’s Baylor-Texas game.

If Baylor wins, ISU is the 4 seed.  If Baylor loses, ISU is the 3 seed.
