    AP Game Story

    Ames, Iowa Craig Brackins scored 22 points and grabbed 16 rebounds as the Iowa State men's basketball team beat Houston Baptist 64-56 Tuesday night at Hilton Coliseum for its fourth straight win.

    Diante Garret added 12 points for the Cyclones (11-4), who recorded their most victories before starting Big 12 Conference play since 2000-01.

    Iowa State led by just two at halftime before opening the second half on a 15-6 run.

    Brackins scored eight quick points and Lucca Staiger hit a 3 to make it 39-28 with 14:17 left.

    Carlos Boozer's 3 pushed the Cyclones lead to 46-32 midway through the second half.

    The Huskies put a late scare into Iowa State, cutting their deficit to 54-46 with 2:49 left, but the Cyclones responded with 10 straight free throws.

    Baron Sauls had 22 points for Houston Baptist (1-15), which was coming off its first win of the season.

    The Cyclones open their conference season on Saturday at No. 7 Texas, their first ranked opponent of the season.
    I really thought that Carlos Boozer would dominate Houston Baptist more.


    41-53 Record in CF Mafia. The most games played and wins by any player in Cyclone Fanatic History. Yes, I'm a nerd.

    The second chance points is inexcusable, but getting outrebounded wasn't because we didn't have position. We had inside position a lot, but their shots came off ridiculously hard and it was a lot of long boards.

    I agree, they were horrendous shooters. We were moderately better tonight-still not great. I thought we looked lost on offense at times. The players don't know where their teammates are going to be on the floor. We had far too many poor passes that either shouldn't have been made, were early, late, etc.

    Hopefully time will cure that-unfortunately the Big XII season is here and time is up

    The team looked lazy and uncommitted to me. I chalk it up to them knowing the team they were playing was 1-14 and just expecting a win without trying.

    Last night watching the game I thought, maybe the team is bored with playing these type of teams. They just looked uninspired. I mean, it is always fun to play basketball, but it has to be hard to get psyched up for lightweight after lightweight. And I am sure the lightweights get pumped to play ISU as they might think it is their possible best shot at beating a school in a top conference.

    I could see this happening.

    Re: AP Game Story

    The most victories since 00-01. Why do I still dread the BXII conference play? We have had some good games and I hope the idea that they were looking past them is the case. Saturday will be a good gauge as to where we are at. The team has played well in most games and appears to rise to the opponents.

    I can agree with that. ISU has a long run of playing down to teams. This has frustrated me for it seems like an eternity.

    It's all about not getting too high or too low right now. I think Saturday will be a lot of fun.

    We have a week for people to talk about how bad we are, how badly we're going to get killed, and everything else. Then we can come out at beat Texas!

    I think we can run with them no matter how the downers put it. As long as they take their time and dont just run and chuck, we should be good.

    Our defensive ability is going to help (of course).

    We've shown some ability to play well on the road. That helps.

    Craig Brackins scores 30+ every time he sets foot in Texas. That helps.

    You'd think after getting beat by SDSU (and even Hawaii), our guys could get motivated to play anyone.
