Fred Hoiberg's Cyclones fell at Oklahoma Saturday, 87-82, for ISU's first loss of the season
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -
14-0 will be the new benchmark for Iowa State hoops.
The Cyclones' start was the program's best ever.
But they say all good things come to an end, and for Iowa State, their perfect record is no exception.
The Cyclones lost their first game of the season Saturday to unranked Oklahoma, 87-82, despite shooting over 50 percent for the game.
Iowa State was paced by guard DeAndre Kane, who scored 23 points but left the game with 22 seconds remaining after injuring his ankle.
No word yet on Kane's status for Monday's game against Kansas - right now head coach Fred Hoiberg is still trying to figure out what went wrong.
"For the game, they shoot 40 percent, we shoot 52 and we end up getting beat by five, and that shouldn't happen," said Hoiberg. "They shot the heck out of the ball today, there's no doubt about that. And we obviously didn't shoot the ball very well. Here we are, sitting with a five-point loss, and getting outscored on second chance points 22-2. That was the ball game."
The Cyclones and Jayhawks tip off at 8:00 p.m. on Monday.
