Now on to some men’s college basketball, Texas outscored Iowa State 13-9 in overtime to beat the Cyclones 74-70 in Hilton Coliseum. It was Iowa State’s second straight home loss to open Big 12 play.

Prohm says there is no panic despite the 0-2 start and the Cyclones need to make more progress before Saturday’s game at Oklahoma State.
Donovan Jackson led Iowa State with 24 points and the Iowa State Men fall to 9-4 overall this season.
