Iowa State is now 1-1 in the Big 12 Conference.
The Iowa State men's basketball team extended it's home winning streak to 16 games as they annihilated Texas 82-62 Saturday afternoon in Ames.
The Cyclones put together one of their best games of the season, committing just five turnovers while tallying 18 assists.
As a team Iowa State shot 43 percent from the floor, made 11 threes in the victory and is the only Division I school to score 70 or more points in every game this season.
After a disappointing loss to Kansas in their Big 12 opener, the Cyclones were more than happy to bounce back.
"I don't know if I've gotten the Kansas game out of my system. I don't know if I'll ever get the Kansas game out of my system," Head Coach Fred Hoiberg said. "It was such a heart breaker, such a disappointment. I loved our overall effort. Especially on the offensive end. Now, we kind of packed it in towards the end, but I thought that allowed us to string together some stops."
I'm glad we didn't have a hangover and come out strong," Georges Niang said. "In the second half we had a lull a little bit and then we came back and fought again."
