The 7-3 Iowa State men's basketball team hosted 5-5 Central Michigan Sunday afternoon at Hilton Coliseum and got their third straight win.
The Cyclones had it going early. First, Chris Babe knocked down a three, then Scott Christopherson hit a triple of his own and the Cyclones led by 19.
Central Michigan would battle back and take the lead by one with under seven minutes to go in the game.
But Royce White and his team high 14 points would prove too much for the Chippewas as the Cyclones advance to 8-3 with a 59-52 victory.
