Iowa State 82, UNO 55

Iowa State raced out to an 11-0 lead and cruised to an 82-55 win over Nebraska-Omaha. Five Cyclones scored in double figures, including 16 from freshman Tyrese Haliburton.

 

Haliburton connected on six of seven shots from the field and says he is gaining confidence on offense.

 

Iowa versus Pitt
The Cyclones are 6-1.The Iowa Hawkeyes climb six spots to 14th in the latest Associated Press college basketball poll. The Hawkeyes are 5-0 and host Pitt on Tuesday night as part of the Big Ten/ACC Challenge. The Panthers are 6-0.

 

That’s Iowa coach Fran McCaffery, who is not surprised Pitt is off to a good start under first year coach Jeff Capel.

 

With essentially the same team Iowa has shown major improvement on the defensive end. McCaffery says added experience is one factor.
