Iowa State squandered a 12-point lead then rallied from a seven point deficit to edge Missouri 70-65 in Hilton Coliseum in their Big-12 opener.Coach Wayne Morgan said on his postgame show on the Cyclone Network that he told his players they were magnificent. Morgan says they really were with the way they hung in the ballgame throughtout. I-S-U bounced back after two road losses, and Morgan says they’d rather learn from victories than losses, but says they did learn alot from the two losses. He says they might not have beat Mizzou had they not lost those two games.Curtis Stinson’s basket with 38 seconds remaining gave the Cyclones the lead and seconds later fellow freshman Will Blalock made a key steal. He says he watched the film and saw enough to know how to time the pass for the steal. Blalock says the Cyclones first goal was to slow down Missouri’s inside game with their zone.It was Iowa State’s fifth straight win over Missouri in Ames.
