Chris Babb added 12 points and Korie Lucious and Anthony Booker had 11 each for the Cyclones (9-3), who got everything they could handle from the Kangaroos (4-7) in the rare case of a Big 12 heavyweight visiting a school from the Summit League.
Estan Tyler matched a career-high with 17 points for the 'Roos, including a basket with just over 16 minutes left that gave them a 39-35 lead over the stunned Cyclones.
That's when Iowa State finally started to get some transition baskets going, and the result was a 14-0 run that spanned the next 5 minutes and allowed the Cyclones to seize control.
