No. 6 Kansas holds off No. 16 Iowa State, 92-81
KANSAS 92, IOWA ST 81

By DAVE SKRETTA
AP Sports Writer

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- Just minutes after Andrew Wiggins put No.
6 Kansas on his back, scoring six of his career-high 29 points
in the defining moment of the game, Iowa State coach Fred
Hoiberg offered a glowing assessment of the star freshman.

"You can tell he's oozing with confidence," Hoiberg said
Wednesday night after his 16th-ranked Cyclones lost 92-81, "and
that's scary."

The nation's No. 1 recruit, Wiggins has finally started to live
up to his hype. He matched his 27-point performance in a win
over TCU last weekend with a dunk that gave Kansas an 81-72 lead
with just under 3 minutes remaining, and then added a couple
free throws for his career high.

The freshman hit four 3-pointers and finished 10 of 16 from the
field.

"I'm just starting to feel more comfortable," Wiggins said.

It helped that he didn't have to carry the load himself.

Perry Ellis added 20 points, Joel Embiid had 14 points and 11
rebounds, and Naadir Tharpe finished with 12 points and 12
assists for the Jayhawks (16-4, 7-0 Big 12), who won their
seventh straight game. Wayne Selden had 11 points and five
assists.

"I'm not surprised at all because we got prepared to play these
games," Tharpe said. "It was a matter of time until everyone
just went out there and started to play."

Georges Niang led the Cyclones (15-4, 3-4) with 24 points.
DeAndre Kane added 22 points and Melvin Ejim, battling foul
trouble much of the game, finished with 18 points and eight
rebounds.

Iowa State started the season with 14 straight wins, but has now
dropped four of its last five. That includes a 77-70 loss to the
Jayhawks earlier this month in Ames.

"If they're hitting shots like that," Hoiberg said of the
Jayhawks, "that's going to be a tough, tough team to beat."

The Jayhawks held on despite a shortened bench. Forward Tarik
Black missed his second game with an ankle injury while guard
Conner Frankamp did not suit up because of a knee injury.

It didn't seem to matter early in the game.

The Jayhawks roared to a 30-14 lead in the opening minutes,
dominating on the offensive glass and taking advantage of
rapidly retreating Cyclones on the defensive boards.

Just as quickly, though, Iowa State whittled into the lead.

The comeback began with a jam off an alley-oop pass by Ejim, and
picked up momentum when the Cyclones hit 3-pointers on four
straight trips down court. By the time Monte Morris finished off
the run, done mostly while Wiggins sat on the bench, the lead
had been trimmed to 37-34.

"I've been in this building enough as a player, as a coach, a
scout, and it happens pretty much every game, they come out and
hit shots early and you have to withstand it, you have to
withstand the runs," Hoiberg said. "I give our guys credit for
clawing back in the game."

The Cyclones pulled even for the first time when Kane buried a
3-pointer out of halftime, but the Jayhawks responded with 11
straight points to regain control. Wiggins did most of the work,
hitting a long jumper and a scooping layup while also getting to
the free throw line.

By that point, a packed crowd that included Kansas City Royals
Billy Butler and Jeremy Guthrie and Grammy nominated musician
Trey Songz was on its feet.

Iowa State made one more charge. Ejim scored to draw within
73-69 and force Kansas coach Bill Self to call a timeout, and
Niang drained a 3-pointer moments later to make it a one-point
game.

Embiid responded with a thunderous dunk, and after Kane turned
it over at the other end, the Cyclones intentionally fouled
Wiggins on a fast break. He made both free throws, and then
added a putback off Embiid's miss to make it a four-point trip.

"That was a pretty big call," Niang said of the intentional
foul. "Not saying it was a bad call or anything, but that's
where they took off."

Wiggins added a run-out dunk after another turnover to give the
Jayhawks an 81-72 lead, and the defending Big 12 champions
coasted the rest of the way to its 18th win in 19 meetings with
Iowa State.

"We gave ourselves a chance," Hoiberg said, "and at the end of
the day, we gave ourselves an opportunity in as tough an
environment as we're going to play in."
