    AMES, Iowa -- Craig Brackins scored 21 points and grabbed 12 rebounds as Iowa State beat Nebraska 65-53 Wednesday for its fifth win in six games.

    Lucca Staiger added 18 points for the Cyclones, who blew a 13-point lead before closing the game with a 10-0 run.

    Ade Dagunduro's 3-point play brought Nebraska within 55-53 with 2:12 left. But Staiger followed a jumper by Brackins with a 3, and Brackins later scored off a turnover gave Iowa State a 62-53 lead with 55 seconds left.

    Dagunduro had 13 points and Cookie Miller added 11 for Nebraska (11-4, 1-1 Big 12), which dropped its conference road opener for the third straight season.

    Nebraska trailed by as much as 39-26 early in the second half. But the Huskers went to a full-court press that stymied the Cyclones, reeling off a 19-6 run to tie the game at 45 with 6:26 left.

    Staiger answered with a 3, and Brackins hit a pair of free throws to give the Cyclones a 52-48 lead.

    Staiger, who was named the Big 12's Rookie of the Week on Monday, went 6-of-12 from 3-point range.
