Iowa State survives at TCU

Posted: Updated:
FT. WORTH, Texas (AP) -

DeAndre Kane scored 20 points, Georges Niang had 19 points and eight rebounds and No. 17 Iowa State kept TCU winless in the Big 12 with a 71-60 victory Saturday.

Georges had two three-point plays in the last 5 minutes to help the Cyclones (21-5, 9-5 Big 12) build a cushion after entering the game in a three-way tie for third place in the conference with Oklahoma and Kansas State.

Kane gave the Cyclones their first double-digit lead when he knocked the ball away from Kyan Anderson for a steal and caught a long pass from Melvin Ejim for a layup.

Ejim, the Big 12 leader at 19.1 points per game coming in, scored 14 after setting a Big 12 record with 48 in Iowa State's 84-69 win over at TCU at home.

Anderson had 18 points for the Horned Frogs (9-17, 0-14), who are 2-30 in their two Big 12 seasons.
