NCAA Game Summary - Iowa State at Texas



(Saturday, January 18th)

Final Score: Texas 86, (8) Iowa State 76

Austin, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Jonathan Holmes matched his career high with 23 points to help Texas knock off No. 8 Iowa State 86-76 at the Frank Erwin Center.

Javan Felix scored 17 points and Cameron Ridley posted a 16-point, 11-rebound double-double for the Longhorns (14-4, 3-2 Big 12), who won their third straight game.

"This was a great win for us, no question. I really think that it was a really great team win for us. We didn't have one guy that didn't go in the game and make a contribution," said Texas coach Rick Barnes.

Iowa State, meanwhile, suffered its third consecutive loss after getting off to the best start in school history.

Georges Niang finished with 18 points, six assists and five rebounds for the Cyclones (14-3, 2-3), who last lost three in a row during the 2010-11 season. Melvin Ejim added 17 points and 10 boards as Iowa State fell to 1-11 all-time in Austin.

"We battled them. We came out with tremendous energy, but they [Texas] hit some shots early," said Iowa State coach Fred Hoiberg. "We stuck with our plan to plug in gaps, we did a good job with that, but we could not pull away."

The teams started the second half tied at 36-36 and continued to go back and forth well into the frame before Texas began to take control.

The Longhorns went up 71-60 on a Ridley lay-in with about six minutes remaining. Felix sank four free throws over the next minute, giving Texas a 75-61 advantage.

Iowa State fought back and whittled its deficit to four on two occasions, but Texas made 6-of-8 free throws down the stretch.

The Cyclones missed their final four shots, including a trio of 3-pointers.
