#15 Cyclones sprint by West Virginia 83-66

Posted: Updated:
AMES (KWWL) -

Georges Niang scored 24 points, DeAndre Kane had 17 and 11 rebounds and No. 15 Iowa State beat West Virginia 83-66 on Wednesday night for its seventh win in eight games. ISU's only loss in that stretch was to the Mountaineers.

Naz Long came off the bench to score 15 points on five 3-pointers for the Cyclones (22-5, 10-5 Big 12), who have recorded three straight 10-win seasons in league play for the first time.

Iowa State rolled despite playing nearly the entire second half without leading scorer Melvin Ejim, who sat because of foul trouble.

Dustin Hogue helped cover for Ejim's absence inside with 15 points and nine rebounds, including a rare 3 with 3:17 left that put the Cyclones ahead 79-65.
