Kansas State Vs. Iowa State Final: Cyclones Trump Wildcats 65-61 For A Huge Big 12 Win

Sometimes when a player gets hot, it doesn't matter what the other team does that player will not be stopped. For the Kansas State Wildcats, there was nothing that they could do to slow down the hot shooting of Iowa State Cyclones guard Scott Christopherson. Christopherson went for 29 points on 10-of-13 shooting to help the Cyclones defeat the Wildcats 65-61 in a huge Big 12 conference matchup.

Kansas State wasted a herculean effort from Jordan Henriquez on Saturday afternoon, as his 19 points, 12 rebounds and 7 huge blocks helped keep Frank Martin's team in the game. However, poor shooting from three-point range (3-of-17 for the game) and poor execution in key moments thwarted the Wildcats efforts.

Iowa State has solidified themselves as a top 4 team in the Big 12, and will look to get themselves ranked on Monday. Kansas State's conference record falls to 8-8 on the season with two games to play.

Kansas State Vs. Iowa State Halftime Update: Hot Shooting Gives Cyclones 37-27 Lead Over Wildcats

Scott Christopherson's perfect shooting in the first half has given the Iowa State Cyclones a 37-27 halftime advantage over the Kansas State Wildcats in Manhattan, Kansas.

Christopherson has tallied 18 points on 6-of-6 shooting from the field, including 4-of-4 shooting from three-point range and 2-of-2 from the free-throw line. Christopherson's shooting has made up for a mediocre shooting performance from the rest of Fred Hoiberg's 's basketball team as they are shooting just 33% from the floor.

Jordan Henriquez is the lone standout for the Wildcats, as his 9 points and 4 blocks have kept the Wildcats in the game. No one else on the squad has more than four points. Can Frank Martin turn the tables at home? A win would give them 20 on the season and put them just a game behind Iowa State for 4th place in the Big 12 conference standings.
