Cyclones have upper hand on Jayhawks

AMES, Iowa — Kansas had Iowa State's number for what felt like a century

The Cyclones might finally be turning this rivalry in their favor.

Monte Morris scored 21, Georges Niang had 19 and No. 14 Iowa State blew past Kansas 85-72 Monday night for its fourth straight win.

Abdel Nader added 17 points for the Cyclones (16-4, 5-3 Big 12), who have beaten three of the top four teams in this week's AP Top 25.

Iowa State overcame a sluggish start with a 24-7 run midway through the second half, and Niang's three-point play made it 80-67 with two minutes left.

Perry Ellis had 23 points and Frank Mason 16 to lead Kansas (16-4, 5-3), which lost its third straight road game. The Jayhawks have lost four of their past five against the Cyclones, a first for a Bill Self-coached team against a Big 12 foe.

AP POLL: Oklahoma, despite a loss last week at Iowa State, remained No. 1, with North Carolina a close second. No. 22 Wichita State, No. 23 Oregon and No. 25 Notre Dame entered, replacing Butler, Southern Cal and South Carolina.

OBITUARY: Hall of Famer Bobby Wanzer, who starred at point guard for Seton Hall in the 1940s and led the Rochester Royals to their only NBA championship, died Saturday at his home outside Rochester, N.Y. He was 94.

Women

NO. 12 KENTUCKY 64, NO. 19 TENNESSEE 63: Makayla Epps scored 14 of her 23 in the third quarter to rally the host Wildcats (15-3, 4-3 SEC) from a seven-point halftime deficit before they held off the Volunteers (12-7, 3-3).

NO. 14 LOUISVILLE 71, SYRACUSE 53: Myisha Hines-Allen had a career-high 27 points and added 10 rebounds as the visiting Cardinals (15-5, 7-0 ACC) won their 12th straight game.

NO. 25 NOTRE DAME: Leading scorer Demetrius Jackson will miss Thursday's game at Syracuse with an injured right hamstring.

AP POLL: USF fell to No. 20 a week after reaching a program-best 15th. Florida dropped out, and Florida State climbed three spots to No. 11. No. 25 Washington entered the poll for the first time since 2003. UConn remained No. 1.

    The buildup to this July 31 trading deadline is different for the Rays, for the rudimentary reason that they are working — feverishly, from what we hear — to add on to a team they feel has a legitimate chance to make a playoff run.
