Tyrus McGee led Iowa State with 22 points.
Sean Kilpatrick scored 32 points, leading No. 22 Cincinnati to a 78-70 win over Iowa State on Friday night in the semifinals of the Global Sports Classic.
After winning their first four games by an average margin of 34.5 points per game, the Bearcats (5-0) had their hands full with a talented Iowa State (4-1) team that stole the momentum in the first half, dictated the pace at times to keep things close and pulled within 4 points with 46 seconds left.
Cincinnati's early second-half run of 15-5 gave it enough breathing room to keep its distance and secure the win.
Cincinnati has won three of the four all-time meetings with Iowa State, the last three coming at neutral sites. This was the first meeting between the schools since then-No. 1 Cincinnati beat Iowa State 75-60 on Nov. 28, 1999, in Hilo, Hawaii.
