Iowa State coach Greg McDermott says there were some positives to come out of Saturday’s loss at Oklahoma State. The Cyclones fell to 2-8 in the Big-12 after an 86-67 loss to the Cowboys and next up visit 15th ranked Kansas on Wednesday.

McDermott says there are portions of the game that they’re playing very well and they need to understand that’s how they pulled out to an early lead.

McDermott says many of the problems for the Cyclones are on the offensive end. He says when scoring comes tough, then the margin of error on the other end is very slim. McDermott says when they rebound well and play defense, then things have gone well.

The Cyclones are 13-12 overall.
