LAWRENCE, KANSAS — A valiant effort by Iowa State came up short at 12th ranked Kansas. The Jayhawks used a late 9-0 run to edge the Cyclones 83-78 as Iowa State falls to 0-4 in the Big 12.
Freshman guard Lindell Wigginton led the Cyclones with 27 points.
“We feel like we could come in and beat them at home”, said Wigginton. “But we did not execute down the stretch and that cost us the game.”
The Cyclones committed 17 turnovers, including three in the final two minutes when the game was on the line.
“You just can not give up live ball turnovers here”, said Iowa State coach Steve Prohm. “Too many turnovers down the stretch and we just did not have the movement we did when we were playing well.”
Donovan Jackson added 20 points as the Cyclones fall to 9-6 overall.

DES MOINES — Drake takes the early Missouri Valley lead on the road tonight to conference newcomer Valparaiso. The Crusaders regularly play two seven-footers and will have a significant size advantage. Drake coach Niko Medved says a lack of size is a factor in every game. The lack of size has made the play of Nick McGlynn even more important. The 6-8 junior is averaging just under 11 points and six rebounds. Drake is 4-0 in the Valley.
CEDAR FALLS — The Northern Iowa Panthers will be out to snap a six game losing skid on Wednesday night when they visit Indiana State. The Sycamore guard tandem of Brenton Scott and Jordan Barnes average better than 31 points per game. UNI coach Ben Jacobson says they will provide a defensive challenge. The Panthers are 0-4 in the Valley and Jacobson says they need to do a better job of converting at the offensive end. Indiana State is 2-2 in the Valley.
