It was a much needed win during a tough season. The Iowa State Cyclones survived a slow start then rolled past Baylor 71-62 in Big-12 play, a game they led by as many as 20 points down the stretch.
ISU coach Greg McDermott says he’s proud of his team after the opening of the game looked like more of the same, but they came back and the bench gave them a lift. McDermott says the Cyclones have maintained a positive attitude and deserved to be rewarded with a win.
McDermott says there are times after games when you are emotionally tired and its hard to get going, but he says for the most part the team has kept working hard and that’s why they ended up getting the win.
The Cyclones improve to 3-10 in conference play and 14-14 overall.
