Cyclones fall to #5 Duke 86-65

CHICAGO (AP) -- Jon Scheyer celebrated a homecoming with 31 points and No. 5 Duke pulled away in the second half to beat Iowa State 86-65 on Wednesday night.

The Blue Devils (13-1) won their seventh straight game behind a balanced attack, a defense that forced 18 turnovers and aggressive rebounding in the game at the United Center.

Scheyer, a prep star in suburban Northbrook, Ill., shot 10 of 19 and had four 3-pointers to lead Duke, which also got 20 points from Nolan Smith and 15 points from Kyle Singler.

Marquis Gilstrap paced Iowa State (10-4) with 16 points. Leading scorer Craig Brackins, who came in averaging 17, had 12.

Scheyer's 3-pointer with the shot clocking running down extended the Blue Devils' lead to 50-35 early in second half. His three-point play about 7 minutes in put the Blue Devils up 19 as they opened the second half with a 17-6 run.
