The Cyclones (13-4, 3-1 Big 12) are off to their best start in conference play since starting 4-0 in 2000. Melvin Ejim had 10 points and 12 rebounds for Iowa State, which hasn't lost since dropping an overtime game to No. 4 Kansas.
TCU (9-9, 0-5) has lost five in a row by an average of 13 points. The Horned Frogs haven't been 0-5 in conference play since 2002, when they were a member of Conference USA.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) -- Shavon Shields scored a career-high 29 points, Ray Gallegos had 15 points and Nebraska held off Penn State in a 68-64 win on Saturday.
Penn State trailed by three points with 24 seconds left in the game before Nebraska's Brandon Ubel was called for a flagrant foul on D.J. Newbill. The foul gave Penn State two extra free throws.
Newbill made one of two free throws and Ross Travis missed the next two from the line. Newbill failed to convert on two more free throws in the final 14 seconds, helping the Huskers (10-9, 1-5 Big Ten) escape with the victory.
Shields went 10 of 11 from the floor and made all eight of his free throws for Nebraska. As a team, the Huskers went 16 of 16 from the free throw line.
Jermaine Marshall scored all of his 18 points in the second half for Penn State (8-10, 0-6).
