NORMAN, Okla. -- Melvin Ejim had 21 points to lead five Iowa State players scoring in double figures as the Cyclones beat Oklahoma 77-70 on Saturday.
Iowa State (17-6, 7-3 Big 12) had 15 3-point baskets (in 30 attempts), one shy of tying a school record for makes.
Andrew Fitzgerald scored 27 points for the Sooners (13-9, 3-7), who focused on shutting down ISU leading scorer Royce White. White finished with three points, taking his only field goal attempt with 1:38 remaining.
Guard Naz Mitrou-Long, whose 2015-16 season ended in December due to hip problems, has been granted a hardship waiver for the coming season, Iowa State said.
