Cyclones now struggling despite strongest start in history

Posted: Updated:
AMES (AP) - Iowa State got off to the best start in school history behind superb shooting and strong rebounding.

The Cyclones suddenly can't do either.

No. 8 Iowa State (14-2, 2-2 Big 12) was dominated on the glass in recent defeats to Oklahoma and Kansas, and it was even worse from beyond the arc.

The Cyclones were minus-24 in rebounding and 10 of 51 from 3-point range in back-to-back losses that followed a 14-0 start.

Improved rebounding and shooting were key points of emphasis for Iowa State this week ahead of Saturday's game at Texas (13-4, 2-2).
