Iowa State’s Dustin Hogue, passing in front of Auburn’s Asauhn Dixon-Tatum, has his best game with 22 points and 16 rebounds.

AMES, Iowa — Dustin Hogue was supposed to be a complementary piece for Iowa State.

It looks as if he's ready for a bigger role.

Hogue set career highs with 22 points and 16 rebounds, and the 17th-ranked Cyclones pounded Auburn 99-70 on Monday night for their sixth straight win.

Melvin Ejim added 14 points and 10 rebounds for Iowa State (6-0), which is the Big 12's last unbeaten team. It was Ejim's 23rd career double double.

The Cyclones grabbed control with a 27-5 run midway through the first half, and they finished with 28 assists on 33 field goals.

Hogue had 16 points and 12 rebounds in the first half as the Cyclones raced to a 19-point lead that grew to as many as 35 in the second half. It was by far the best outing to date for Hogue, a junior college transfer who surprisingly has emerged as one of Iowa State's best players.

"The thing that's impressed me about him is just his overall basketball IQ," Iowa State coach Fred Hoiberg said. "He knows when to space the floor. He knows when to cut. He's a very good passer. He gets that thing off the board and it's a quick outlet to get the break our going. He just does so many things."

Chris Denson scored 27 and KT Harrell 19 for Auburn, which shot 35.5 percent from the field and got outrebounded 47-36.

"They out-toughed us. That's the bottom line," Auburn coach Tony Barbee said.

Hogue, a 6-foot-6 junior from Yonkers, N.Y., averaged 12.9 points and 5.4 rebounds last season at Indian Hills Community College in Iowa, with many of those baskets coming around the rim and in transition.

AP POLL: Michigan State was No. 1 for a third straight week, receiving all but two of the first-place votes. Florida remained 15th. Villanova went from unranked to No. 14 and was joined in the poll by No. 24 San Diego State and No. 25 Dayton, replacing North Carolina, Creighton and Marquette.

Women

USF: Guard Inga Orekhova had surgery on her left knee and is expected to miss 4-6 weeks.

NO. 12 S.C. 79, N.C. CENTRAL 27: Tiffany Mitchell had 19 points for the host Gamecocks (8-0), who shot 58.5 percent and gave coach Dawn Staley her 100th win early in her sixth season.

NO. 24 GONZAGA 82, FAIRFIELD 42: Haiden Palmer had 18 points for the host Bulldogs (5-1), who closed the first half on a 15-0 run and cruised.

AP POLL: Connecticut remained the unanimous No. 1. Syracuse and Iowa entered at Nos. 22 and 25. DePaul and Michigan State fell out.
