AMES (AP) -

Iowa State's Monte Morris notched the fifth triple-double in school history and 20th-ranked Iowa State throttled The Citadel 130-63 on Sunday, setting a program record for points in a game.

Morris had 17 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists and zero turnovers for Iowa State (3-0), which shot 60.5 percent from the floor. The Cyclones held the Bulldogs (2-2) -- who entered play averaging a national-best 112.2 points a game -- to just 22 in the first half.

Iowa State jumped ahead 18-3 and pushed its lead to 32 after just 14 minutes.

Iowa State cracked 100 with 11 minutes left, and coach Steve Prohm was able to pull Morris from the game with 7:46 left so Morris should get a standing ovation.

Naz Mitrou-Long scored 26 points and Matt Thomas had 18 for the Cyclones, who are beating their opponents by an average of 42 points.

Quayson Williams had 15 for the Bulldogs.
