DES MOINES (KWWL) -

The Iowa State Cyclones, led by a lights out performance from Naz Long, took down Drake 97-80 Saturday night in Des Moines.

The game was the second matchup in the Hy-Vee Big Four Classic.

Long led all scorers with 37 points on 14-18 shooting, including 12-14 from beyond the arc.  He also added six rebounds and five assists.

Monte Morris added 20 points, seven rebounds and four assists, while Darrell Bowie added 12 points and eight boards.

The Drake Bulldogs kept this game much closer than the Cyclones would've liked.  The two teams were tied at 76 with six minutes to go in the game.

But the Cyclones closed on a 21-4 run that helped push the Bulldogs to just 1-9 on the season, while they improved to 7-3.
