Well, that game on Wednesday was about as deflating as it gets... Iowa State let Baylor come into Ames and snap Iowa State's home winning streak behind a late barrage of three pointers in the second half. Now, the Cyclones no longer control their own destiny when it comes to capturing a share of the Big 12 title.
The season isn't over though, and today ISU plays Kansas State in Manhattan - a place the Wildcats took down the Kansas Jayhawks less than a week ago.
The Opponent: Kansas State (14-15, 7-9)
Tip: Saturday, 3 p.m. CST - Bramlage Coliseum - Manhattan, Kansas
TV/Webcast: ESPN2 / WatchESPN
Radio: Cyclone Radio Network

Kansas State is riding high off their upset win over the Jayhawks on Monday, so this could end up being a letdown game for them (even though their season is pretty much already a letdown). Bramlage is obviously not an easy arena to win in though, so without a focused Iowa State effort on both ends of the floor it could be tough to get out of Manhattan with a victory.
Lots of local media pegged this game to be the one the Cyclones might drop with four games remaining in their season. The loss to Baylor on Wednesday completely blindsided anyone who regularly keeps tabs on Iowa State, including sportswriters and fans. Now that the Clones already have a loss under their belt in the final four game stretch, will they keep battling in their remaining three games, or pack it up until the postseason?
The Wildcats upset Kansas behind Nigel Johnson's 20 point outburst. The sophomore guard scored his season high behind a 8-11 performance from the field, including going 4-5 from 3-point range.
Heralded preseason star Marcus Foster played an atrocious game against KU, jacking up 13 shots from the field while only connecting on three. Foster also missed all six 3-pointers he attempted. What does this mean? Foster will likely come out unconscious against Iowa State. #CyLuck
