    DES MOINES, Iowa -- Lucca Staiger scored a career-high 32 points on 10-of-16 shooting from 3-point range and Iowa State defeated Drake 90-70 Tuesday night to snap a three-game losing streak to the Bulldogs.

    Craig Brackins added 22 points and 10 rebounds for the visiting Cyclones (3-0), who jumped out to a 19-point halftime lead and lead by double digits the rest of the way.

    Freshman Ben Simons had 24 points for Drake (0-2) and Ryan Wedel added 13. Bulldogs star Josh Young, who missed the opener with a hip injury, scored 11 points.

    The Cyclones suffered their worst loss ever to Drake, 79-44, on their last trip to Des Moines. This time, Iowa State dominated its in-state rivals from the opening tip.

    The Cyclones outrebounded the Bulldogs 39-21 and shot 56.3 percent from 3-point range.
