AMES — Jaren Holmes scored 18 of his 23 points in the second half as 12th-ranked Iowa State held off #5 Kansas State 80-76 on Tuesday night in Ames. The Cyclones shot better than 62 percent in the second half to move to 6-2 in the Big 12.

That’s Cyclone T.J. Otzelberger who says the ball movement was better in the second half.

The Cyclones outrebounded the Wildcats 28-20 and had 17 second chance points.

Gabe Kalscheur added 19 as the Cyclones improve to 11-0 at home.




DES MOINES — D.J. Wilkins connected on a three pointer with 2.9 seconds remaining to rescue Drake in an 70-68 win over Indiana State in Des Moines on Tuesday night. It was a game the Bulldogs led by 18 at halftime.

That’s Drake coach Darian DeVries. It was the second straight home game in which the Bulldogs squandered a double digit halftime lead.

DeVries says they need to find a way to be more consistent.

The Bulldogs are 7-4 in Missouri Valley play and 16-6 overall.




CEDAR FALLS — Winners of five of their last six games, the UNI Panthers host Valparaiso tonight in Missouri Valley Conference action. The Panthers are third in the Valley race with a 7-3 mark. After starting 0-7 Valpo has won three straight.

That’s Panther coach Ben Jacobson. UNI won the first meeting 69-67 on the road but Jacobson says the Beacons are a much different team right now.

Jacobson says the Panthers will need to eliminate some mistakes on the defensive end against a much more confident team.

Northern Iowa is 11-9 overall..




AMES — The 18th-ranked Iowa State women are on the road tonight in Big 12 play to take on TCU. The Cyclones are 5-2 in the league race while the Horned Frogs are 0-7.

That’s Cyclone coach Bill Fennelly who says his team is not focused on the records.

With center Stephanie Soares out for the season with a knee injury the Cyclones have gone smaller and Fennelly is still using different combinations.

Iowa State is 13-4 overall
