AMES, Iowa (AP) -- Will Clyburn notched his sixth double-double of the season with 28 points and 10 rebounds as Iowa State beat Baylor 79-71 on Saturday night in a tense Big 12 Conference game.
Clyburn, a senior, sank three 3-pointers on an uncharacteristically icy night from beyond the arc for the Cyclones (15-6, 5-3), who pulled into a four-way tie for third place in the conference standings.
Iowa State won its league-leading 19th straight game at home and extended its conference home win streak to 11.
The Bears (14-7, 5-3) lost their second consecutive game and fell to 0-11 all-time in Ames. Pierre Jackson led Baylor with 23 points.
Georges Niang added 17 points for the Cyclones, who missed their first 13 3-point attempts.
