AMES – The magical season for the Iowa State Cyclones is quickly coming to a halt after a second straight conference loss, this time to Kansas, losing 77-70 Monday to the suddenly-hot Jayhawks.

The eighth-ranked Cyclones fell behind the young Jayhawks and could never really get on track, as cold shooting and missed opportunities doomed them in front of a raucous Hilton Coliseum crowd.

The loss dropped Iowa State to 14-2 on the season and 2-2 in the Big 12. Kansas improved to 12-4 overall and 3-0 in the Big 12.

Playing only two days after suffering an ankle injury at Oklahoma, DeAndre Kane led four Cyclones in double figures with 21 points and eight rebounds.

Iowa State played from behind for the entire first half. The Cyclones went into the intermission with some momentum as DeAndre Kane hit a 3-pointer at the buzzer to tie the game at 36-36.

Kansas blew out of the gates in the second half with a 9-0 run and never looked back.

Iowa State returns to action Saturday at Texas. Tipoff is scheduled for 3 p.m. with the Big 12 Network televising the game.
