Iowa State basketball looking to rebound from back to back losses

Iowa State got off to the best start in school history behind superb shooting and strong rebounding.

The Cyclones suddenly can't do either.

No. 8 Iowa State (14-2, 2-2 Big 12) was dominated on the glass in recent defeats to Oklahoma and Kansas, and it was even worse from beyond the arc.

The Cyclones were minus-24 in rebounding and 10 of 51 from 3-point range in back-to-back losses that followed a 14-0 start.

Improved rebounding and shooting were key points of emphasis for Iowa State this week ahead of Saturday's game at Texas (13-4, 2-2).
