Cyclones Drop Bears
The first half was full of runs and lead changes, with the Bears leading through much of the first half. However, Scott Christopherson hit a shot from beyond the arc with 3:24 remaining in the first half to take the lead for good. By halftime the Cyclones had extended their lead to 7 points.
Baylor came out in the second half and was able to bring the game back to a 1 point game, but could never regain the lead. Coach Drew even abandoned the 2-3 zone the Bears have run for much of the past two seasons to play man-to-man but the Bears couldn't find an answer to Iowa State's hot shooting.
LaceDarius Dunn lead the Bears with 20 points, but only went 8/19 shooting in the game. AJ Walton chipped in 12 points to go along with 6 assists. Iowa State was also able to contain freshman phenom Perry Jones, who was coming off a career high scoring performance against Oklahoma Tuesday night.
It will be a quick turnaround for the Bears, who will be hosting ESPN's Big Monday in Waco as they face off with #3 Kansas (17-0, 2-0) at 8:30.
