Iowa State guard Will Clyburn had a stretch all his own in the second half that helped the Cyclones to a 73-66 victory against Oklahoma in the quarterfinal round of the Big 12 Championship.

In 2 minutes, 10 seconds, Clyburn scored 10 straight points.

The Cyclone guard's run began at the 5:29 mark, when he sank two free throws after Oklahoma's Andrew Fitzgerald fouled him. That brought Iowa State within five, 60-55.

Then, at 4:44, Clyburn scored a layup off the right side. Then, 33 seconds later, Cylburn drained a 3-pointer from the left side of the arc to tie the game at 60-all.

With 3:19 left, Clyburn made a basket and drew a foul from OU's Romero Osby for the and-one. Clyburn made all three and gave Iowa State it's first lead of the day at 63-62.

“Just in the flow of the game,” said Clyburn, a 6-foot-7 senior. “It's all about just me growing as a person. Earlier in the season, I had a tendency of going to my shell when things weren't going right.”


 If junior reserve Cameron Clark wasn't hitting the jumper, he was at the free throw line draining a shot.

After going 2-of-4 in the first half, Clark finished the game 5-of-7 from the floor and 7-of-7 from the charity stripe. He collected 17 points for OU, one-less than leading scorer Romero Osby. Clark added four rebounds and three steals.

“Cam had a good stretch,” Oklahoma coach Lon Kruger said. “Gave us a good lift, as Roe did earlier. But you've just gotta do things to try to keep your guys that are making plays involved a bit more.”
