Niang leads No. 15 Iowa State past TCU 83-66

AMES, Iowa (AP) - Georges Niang scored 23 points, floor leader Monte Morris added 16 and No. 15 Iowa State pulled away in the second half to beat TCU 83-66 on Saturday.

Iowa State (16-4, 6-2 Big 12) ran its homecourt winning streak to 19 with its first double-digit win in conference play. The Cyclones' previous five league victories had been decided by a total of 18 points.

Bryce Dejean-Jones scored 16 points and Dustin Hogue had 12 for the Cyclones, who won their second straight after a humbling loss at Texas Tech a week ago. TCU (14-7, 1-7) stayed close for a half, causing some edginess among the Cyclone faithful, but Iowa State finally took control with a pair of big runs in the second half.

Trey Zeigler led TCU with 14 points and Chris Washburn scored 11.
