Drake Beats Iowa State Again, 66-63

Posted:

AMES (KWWL)-- Josh Young scored 19 points and Craig Stanley hit a go-ahead 3-pointer with 3:04 left, lifting Drake to a 66-63 victory over Iowa State on Tuesday night.

Jonathan Cox added 14 points and 14 rebounds and Adam Templeton scored 13 for the Bulldogs (7-2), who beat Iowa State for the third straight time. Drake had not done that since winning four in a row from 1973-77.

Lucca Staiger led Iowa State (6-2) with 24 points on eight 3-pointers, while Bryan Petersen scored 11 and Craig Brackins 10.

Drake trailed by 12 points midway through the second half and was down 60-50 with 8 minutes left. But Iowa State made only one basket the rest of the way and the Bulldogs rallied.

Stanley's 3 from the right corner gave Drake its first lead at 64-62. Brackins' free throw drew the Cyclones to within a point, but Stanley and Templeton each made a free throw to wrap it up.

Iowa State travels to Iowa City on Friday to face the Hawks. Tip off time is at 7:05 p.m.

Drake hosts Southern Georgia on Friday, as they try to keep their five game win streak alive.
