AMES, Iowa (AP) - Will Clyburn showed just how good Iowa State can be when the Cyclones follow his lead.
On Saturday, Clyburn torched then-No. 11 Kansas State for 24 points and 10 rebounds as Iowa State held off the Wildcats 74-69 for their first win over a ranked opponent this season.
It was a win the Cyclones (14-5, 4-2 Big 12) badly needed after an ugly loss at Texas Tech, and it kept them afloat in the upper half of the league ahead of Wednesday's game at Oklahoma State (13-5, 3-3).
Clyburn on Monday was named the Big 12's Rookie of the Week on Monday after posting back-to-back double-doubles.
