AMES, Iowa (AP) - 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.
Tyrus McGee and Georges Niang added 14 points apiece off the bench for Iowa State, which trailed the Bulldogs by as many as 12 points in the first half.
Jeremiah Kreisberg led Yale (4-10) with 16 points and Javier Duren scored 12.
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.
