Northwestern hands Cyclones first season loss

Posted:
CHICAGO (KWWL) -- Iowa State shot 28.0 percent from the field in the second half in a 67-65 loss to Northwestern in the championship game of the Chicago Invitational Saturday night. A second-half cold spell doomed the Cyclones, as ISU went through a 12-minute drought where they made just one field goal, turning an 8-point ISU lead into a NU advantage.
 
It was the first loss of the season for the Cyclones, who fall to 6-1. The Wildcats improve to 5-1.
 
ISU is back in action on Wednesday, playing host to Northern Iowa at 7 p.m. in Hilton Coliseum.
