AMES (AP) -
Senior Matt Thomas scored a career-high 23 points to lead Iowa State past Mississippi Valley State 88-60 on Tuesday, helping the Cyclones post back-to-back wins for the first time in a month.

Naz Mitrou-Long had 19 points and Monte Morris scored 13 for the Cyclones (8-3), who shot 50 percent from 3-point range.
But Iowa State, plagued by turnovers, let winless Mississippi Valley State (0-12) rip off a 16-3 run in the first half and trailed the winless Delta Devils 25-24 at one point.

The Cyclones eventually overwhelmed MVSU, jumping ahead 78-53 on a Thomas layup with just over six minutes left.

Isaac Williams and Darrell Riley each scored 18 for the Delta Devils. They were outrebounded 43-28.
