November 13, 2019 5:59am

The Iowa State men's basketball team (2-1, 0-0 Big 12) reeled off an impressive second half to take out Northern Illinois (0-1, 0-0 MAC), 70-52. The Cyclones trailed the Huskies at the half, but found their offensive rhythm in the second half, led by Rasir Bolton's team-high 17 points.

Despite hitting just 3-25 from deep, the Iowa State offense still found its stride thanks to 23-35 shooting from inside the arc. ISU cruised to its second victory of the season, closing out the game on a 26-12 run, holding NIU scoreless for nearly a five minute stretch.

Iowa State returns to the court next Tuesday, Nov. 19 at 7 p.m. to face Southern Miss. The game marks the beginning of Battle 4 Atlantis and is the Campus Game of the tournament.
