AMES — The Iowa State men opened Big 12 play with a victory on the road, snapping a 12-game road losing skid with a 69-63 win at Oklahoma State. Lindell Wigginton finished with 17 points in just his second game back from injury.
After failing to win a road game last season the Cyclones were able to make the plays down the stretch.
Marial Shayok also had 17 points as ISU improved to 11-2 on the season after trailing by one at halftime.
Iowa State coach Steve Prohm.
IOWA CITY — The Iowa basketball team will wear special warm-up shirts tonight at Purdue honoring Tyler Trent. The Purdue student died of cancer on Tuesday, just days after watching the Boilermaker football team play in the Music City Bowl. Iowa coach Fran McCaffery.
The 25th ranked Hawkeyes are 11-2 overall but they resume Big Ten play with an 0-2 record.
McCaffery says the Hawkeyes are not looking at the big picture.
You can hear the Iowa-Purdue game on AM-1300 KGLO tonight starting with the pre-game at 5 o’clock with tipoff scheduled for 6 o’clock.
AMES — Bridget Carleton scored 26 points as the 25th ranked Iowa State women opened Big 12 play with a 96-58 win over Kansas State in Ames.
That’s Iowa State coach Bill Fennelly who says it was a complete effort by his team.
Iowa State is now 11-2 overall and will travel to Kansas on Saturday.
IOWA CITY — Iowa coach Lisa Bluder says Megan Gustafson’s record setting performances are flying “under the radar”. The senior center became Iowa’s all-time leading scorer last Sunday in an 84-70 loss at Michigan State.
Bluder has been surprised the accomplishment has not been drawing more attention.
The Hawkeyes look for their first Big Ten win at home tonight against Nebraska. The Huskers gave Iowa fits a year ago.
Bluder is concerned about Nebraska’s balance.
BOSTON (AP) — Gordon Hayward came off the bench to score a season-high 35 points, and the Boston Celtics beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 115-102 on Wednesday night.
Terry Rozier scored 11 of his 16 points in the first quarter while making his third start of the season because Kyrie Irving scratched both of his eyes in Monday’s game against San Antonio. Hayward took over from there, with 13 in the second quarter and 15 in the third to finish with his highest scoring game with the Celtics.
Andrew Wiggins scored 31 points, and Karl-Anthony Towns scored 20 of his 28 points — and grabbed five of his 12 rebounds — in the third quarter, when Minnesota trimmed a 22-point deficit to six points. But with about four minutes left the Celtics scored eight straight points to clinch their fifth straight win over the Wolves.
