Niang and Thomas lead No. 14 Iowa State over Texas 85-77

Georges Niang and Matt Thomas scored 17 points each to help No. 14 Iowa State beat Texas 85-77 on Saturday.

For Thomas, a sophomore reserve, it was a career high.

Iowa State (20-6, 10-4 Big 12) won its second straight Big 12 road game, something the Cyclones had not accomplished since the 2005-06 season. They had lost six straight at Texas since their only victory over the Longhorns in Austin in 2005.

Kendal Yancy led Texas (17-10, 6-8) with a career-best 29 points, 18 more than his average. He scored 21 in the second half. Isaiah Taylor added 23, matching his career high.

Yancy made a career-high six 3-pointers. His fourth of the game left Texas trailing by just five points with seven minutes remaining.

But Iowa State trumped that with consecutive 3s by Thomas and Naz Long.

Iowa State finished the first half with an 8-0 push to forge ahead 35-31.

Texas helped the Cyclones by committing two turnovers on its final three possessions of the period. The first, by Isaiah Taylor, led to a transition 3-point basket by Bryce Dejean-Jones (16 points). The second turnover, by Connor Lammert, allowed Iowa State to score on a fast-break layup by Monte Morris.

The Longhorns committed 12 turnovers in the half, including four during the first four minutes. Three came on their first three possessions.

Even so, the Longhorns were able to take a four-point lead late in the half thanks a pair of guards who produced more than they usually do.

Demarcus Holland scored eight points in the half - he averages 6.7 a game - converting four of five shots.

Yancy also scored eight, before leaving with two fouls with 8:08 left in the half.

Dejean-Jones, a former starting guard who has been a reserve for the last five games, scored 10 in the half.
