SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) - Saturday, Iowa State had two undefeated basketball teams on its campus.
  
Sunday, they have none.
   
The men fell at Oklahoma Saturday, 87-82, but they weren't the only 14-0 team in Ames to go down.

The Iowa State women also lost Saturday - the Cyclones dropped a 69-62 decision to 15th-ranked Oklahoma State at Hilton Coliseum.

ISU led by three at halftime, but was outscored by the Cowgirls by 10 in the second half.

It's a loss that head coach Bill Fennelly acknowledged as difficult - not just for the team, but for all of Cyclone nation.

"The one thing I do feel bad is not the loss," said Fennelly. "It's that we let our fans down. And that bothers me because our fans are so good to us."

Iowa State returns to Hilton Coliseum Wednesday for a matchup with West Virginia.
