AMES, Iowa -- Will Clyburn scored 14 of his team-high 17 points in the second half as Iowa State survived Yale's upset bid and beat the Bulldogs 80-70 on Tuesday.
Clyburn's three-point play fueled a 17-5 second-half run for the Cyclones (10-3), who open Big 12 Conference play Jan. 9 at No. 6 Kansas.
The Cyclones converted just one of their first seven field-goal tries and two of their first seven from the free-throw line as Yale led nearly the entire first half. Iowa State shot 25.9 percent before the break.
