"Iowa State appears poised for a strong second-half surge. The Cyclones have won three of their past four games -- all of which came against some of the Big 12's best teams. They beat Kansas State (by six points), Baylor (eight) and Oklahoma (19) in Ames, Iowa, and lost to Oklahoma State 78-76 in Stillwater, Okla... The Cyclones' 78.7 points per game ranks 11th in the nation. In Monday's win over Oklahoma, six players made 3-pointers in the first nine minutes."
