Cyclones Can’t Summit Mountaineers, Lose 70-85

New, 1 comment

Tough one to play with only 7 players available.

NCAA Basketball: Iowa State at West Virginia Ben Queen-USA TODAY Sports

Terrence Lewis opened up the Cyclones scoring, followed by two Jeff Bae-verly buckets to put up ISU 7-4. Lindell had a pair of free throws to keep the Cyclones close, and then a Lard block led to about a 40 second lull in scoring for both teams.

A Lindell Wigginton three would cut the WV lead to one, however the Mountaineers would go on an 11-2 run to end the half as they’d go up 39-30.

WVU held the Cyclones without a field goal for the last 4:30 of the half. Wigginton led the way with 12 points, and Talley (the Hoegemeyer Hybrids player of the Half) had 5 points, 4 assists, 3 boards, and 2 steals.

Cameron Lard would open up the scoring in the second half, and :45 seconds into the second stanza and also at 16:11 left, @Big12Refs would make an appearance.

Terrence Lewis would continue scoring in this half, hitting his 3rd with 11:55 left in the game.

The story of the second half would be best described as decently close but far away from success. Lard had a fantastic dunk at the 8:05 mark.

The Cyclones tried to high-octane their way into a comeback, but the ‘Eers were det’Eermined to make our comeback futile.

Lindell had a banked three that sort of sparked the aforementioned comeback attempt.

Beverly, in his amazing quality to close out games, hit a jumper to end the scoring for both teams and the WV squad would win by 15.

Come out on Tuesday the 27th to celebrate the Seniors of Iowa State basketball (tip at 6!), and afterwards come celebrate my 21st birthday with me by getting Ames Tap Water with me at a T.B.A. location!
