AMES (KWWL) -

Royce White scored 17 points, Scott Christopherson added a season-high 16 and Iowa State beat Iowa 86-76 on Friday night, giving the Cyclones their first three-game winning streak over the Hawkeyes since the mid-1980s.

Bubu Palo chipped in with a career-high 14 points for Iowa State (7-3), which last won three in a row over the rival Hawkeyes from 1983-85.

White had 14 points in the first half, when the Cyclones led by as many as 24. Iowa got as close as 13 midway through the second half, but Iowa State pulled away behind Christopherson to give Fred Hoiberg his fifth win in six tries over Iowa as a player and coach.
