Cyclones roll past Kansas in to Big 12 title game

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -

Georges Niang scored 25 points before leaving with a bloody gash to his forehead in the closing minutes, and No. 16 Iowa State held on to beat No. 10 Kansas 94-83 Friday night and reach its first Big 12 tournament title game since 2000.

DeAndre Kane had five 3-pointers and scored 20 points, and Big 12 player of the year Melvin Ejim added 19 points for the fourth-seeded Cyclones (25-8), who will play for just their second tournament title against the winner of Texas-Baylor on Saturday night.

Relying on some hot outside shooting, Iowa State took charge in the second half, and then held on as the top-seeded Jayhawks (24-9) tried to make a late run to get back into the game.

Perry Ellis led Kansas with 30 points. Andrew Wiggins finished with 22.
