Iowa State basketball falls at Houston

No. 6 Iowa State lost at No. 2 Houston on Monday night 73-65 in Big 12 men’s basketball.

Houston took over sole possession of first place in America’s toughest basketball conference. The Cyclones fell to 20-6, 9-4. Houston is 23-3, 10-3.

This was only the third time in Iowa State history that the Cyclones were involved in a road game involving two top-10 teams (the others: losses to Kansas in 1957 and 1997).

Here’s a look at how the game unfolded:

It has not been Tamin Lipsey’s night, but Keshon Gilbert has done his best to make up for it. Looking like Houston is going to hang on for its 20th consecutive win at home. Iowa State has given the Cougars a really good battle. Need some magic to pull off this one, though.
