Iowa State overcame a sluggish first half to cruise past Northern Colorado 89-63 in non-conference action last night in Ames. Northern Colorado made seven of ten three pointers in the opening half and trailed by just seven at the break.Coach Wayne Morgan on the post-game show on the Cyclone Network said they have to do a better job on defense to disrupt shots. Northern Colorado made just nine of 30 shots in the second half as Morgan was able to empty his bench and give some of the walk-ons a chance to play. He says he’s been coaching a long time and has never been around a better bunch of walk-ons.I-S-U improves to 10-2.
