Cyclones rock Colorado 95-90 on senior night at Hilton

Posted:

AMES (KWWL)-- Freshman Calvin Godfrey scored a career-high 23 points and Iowa State beat Colorado 95-90 Wednesday night, damaging the Buffaloes' hopes for an NCAA tournament bid.

Scott Christopherson added 17 for the Cyclones (16-14, 3-12 Big 12), who have won two straight after dropping 10 in a row.

Marcus Relphorde buried a 3-pointer to pull the Buffaloes within 83-81 with 2:03 left. But Jake Anderson answered with a 3, and Alec Burks missed a scoop on the other end.

Godfrey punctuated his career night with a raucous slam with 37 seconds left.

Burks scored 24 points and Relphorde 21 to lead Colorado (18-12, 7-8), which lost for the 19th time in its last 20 games at Hilton Coliseum.

This was the last scheduled Big 12 matchup between Iowa State and Colorado. The Buffaloes won only five of their 42 trips to Ames.
