Cowboys Lose Heartbreaker To Cyclones
Jameel McKay had career highs of 17 points and 14 rebounds to help No. 14 Iowa State knock off No. 22 Oklahoma State 70-65 on Wednesday night.
McKay, a 6-foot-9 forward, created problems on both ends with his leaping ability. He made 13 of 18 free throws, blocked four shots and had nine offensive rebounds.
Dustin Hogue scored 14 points, Monte Morris had 11 points and Georges Niang scored all nine of his points in the second half for the Cyclones (19-6, 9-4 Big 12). Iowa State outrebounded Oklahoma State 44-28 and had 18 offensive boards to snap a four-game road losing streak.
Le'Bryan Nash and Phil Forte each scored 13 points, but they combined to make just 7 of 24 shots for the Cowboys (17-9, 7-7), who lost their second straight after three consecutive wins over ranked teams.
