Iowa State rallies past Iowa 75-72


IOWA CITY (KWWL) -- Iowa State got a career game from Scott Christopherson and overcame a 9 point halftime deficit to defeat in-state rival Iowa 75-72 Friday night.

Christopherson poured in 30 for the Cyclones as they pulled off the first road victory for either team in the series in seven games.

Iowa State trailed Iowa 40-31 at the halftime break, but scored the first 8 points of the second half to pull within one.  After pulling ahead 51-50, the Cyclones extended to a 10 point lead and never looked back holding off an Iowa run that pulled them within 2 in the final minute.  Christopherson provided the dagger moments later hitting a 3 with just over 30 seconds left to seal the victory.
