“It's a good step,” Kruger said about what the record means for the program. “This group, last spring, had an objective of making progress and making big strides. They've done that. It doesn't happen without their commitment and their investment. They've done that.

“It's still not over obviously but we said back in October, this is a process. We're not able to stop and be too satisfied until it's all over. We've got another couple weeks of that same speech.”

TIP INS

* Stringtown native Tyrus McGee led the Cyclones off the bench with 22 points.

* 13 of Oklahoma's 16 first-half field goals were assisted.

* After only 10 fouls were called in the first half, the second half was a foul-a-thon with 28 called.

* With the victory, Oklahoma moved into sole possession of fourth place in the Big 12.

QUOTABLE

Iowa State coach Fred Hoiberg on the loss: “We didn't have it and again, a lot of that had to do with Oklahoma and what they did to us. ... It's really the first time all year that we just absolutely got it taken to us. We got our butts kicked. It's a terrible feeling, especially with the magnitude of this game.”

NEXT THREE

* Wednesday vs. West Virginia

* Saturday at TCU

* March 13-16 at Kansas City for Big 12 Tournament
