Iowa St. 81, Lipscomb 64

AMES, Iowa -- Scott Christopherson scored a season-high 24 points and Iowa State withstood 30 points from Ames native Jordan Burgason to beat Lipscomb 81-64 Wednesday night for its fourth straight victory.

Chris Allen matched his career high with 23 points for the Cyclones (9-3), who built a 10-point lead in the first half, saw Lipscomb get within four early in the second half, then scored 20 of the next 29 points to take control.

Christopherson buried a 3-pointer from the left corner after taking a behind-the-back pass from Royce White to put the Cyclones up 58-45. White later blocked a shot, grabbed the ball and hit Percy Gibson for a layup to extend the lead to 63-48.

Lipscomb (6-8) was playing the fourth of seven straight road games. The Bison have lost all four.
