MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) Scott Christopherson scored 29 points as Iowa State knocked off Kansas State 65-61 on Saturday.

The win was the seventh in the last nine outings for the Cyclones (21-8, 11-5), who began the streak with an upset of Kansas on Jan. 28.

Jordan Henriquez led the Wildcats (19-9, 8-8 Big 12) with 19 points, 12 rebounds and seven blocks.

Down 59-56 with 3:50 to go, the Wildcats made a strong push to attempt to complete a comeback from a 10-point halftime deficit.

Angel Rodriguez made a free throw to tie it at 61, but Christopherson hit his fifth 3-pointer to put the Cyclones back on top 64-61 with 1:30 to play.

Rodriguez then missed two free throws. After Christopherson missed one of his own, Rodney McGruder's 3-point attempt was no good, and Kansas State had to foul. Chris Allen made one of two from the line, and that was enough.
