Gilstrap’s 15 help Iowa State beat Nebraska 56-53
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP)—Marquis Gilstrap scored 15 points and Iowa State held Nebraska to just two field goals and two free throws in the final 10 1/2 minutes to break a 16-game Big 12 road losing streak with a 56-53 victory on Saturday night.
Diante Garrett banked in a jumper from the wing to break a 51-51 tie and Craig Brackens followed with a dunk.
The Huskers had a chance to tie after Jorge Brian Diaz scored underneath, but Garrett swiped the ball away from Sek Henry and Gilstrap picked it up for the Cyclones (12-5, 1-1).
Lucca Staiger made a free throw with 9.3 seconds left for a three-point lead, and Lance Jeter’s desperation 3-pointer at the buzzer was an air ball.
Ryan Anderson had 13 points and Jeter 12 for the Huskers (12-6,0-3), who have lost three straight.
It was ISU’s first conference road win since it beat the Huskers in February 2007.
