Lindell Wigginton opened up tonight’s scoring with a bucket at the 18:50 mark to go up 2-0.
The Sooners would go on a 9-0 run, but then Wigginton had a monster dunk to get us back within clawing distance.
Lindell kept carrying the Cyclones and at the 10:46 mark of the first half, ISU was up 18-16, and he already had double figures.
Lard had his 59th block of the season following the under-8 timeout which tied him with McKay for 5th most in a season.
Beverly would connect on a traditional three-point play at 5:38 left to put ISU up 29-28.
Iowa State would open up the second half going 2/2 from the field, but then the wheels fell off the wagon.
However, a #FunFactFriday occurred when Wigginton and Lard became the highest scoring freshman duo in Cyclone history, passing Hoiberg and Michalik who had 837 points.
At the 8:11 left in the game mark, Beverly did the unthinkable to most, a double double.

However, that positive news would fade fast as Oklahoma would end up winning 81-60.
