The Cyclones had to battle through a tough first half when calls were not going their way. Iowa State got deep into foul trouble and seemingly couldn’t do anything without the refs blowing the whistle. Somehow the Cyclones kept their composure and went into the break with a one point lead.
The second half came and Iowa State ramped up the defensive pressure. Iowa State was the more aggressive team and kept Wisconsin from getting into a rhythm offensively. Gabe Kalscheur was huge all night on the other end. Kalscheur for all his struggles this season went to work and kept Iowa State rolling all night. The senior poured in a team-high 22 points.
