    AMES, Iowa -- Royce White had 14 points and eight rebounds and Iowa State held off Central Michigan 59-52 on Sunday for its third straight win.

    Chris Babb scored 11 points for the Cyclones (8-3), who survived a second-half scare from the Chippewas (5-6).

    Central Michigan took its first lead, 48-47, with 6:48 left. Iowa State grabbed the lead back on a breakaway dunk from Tyrus McGee, and White gave the Cyclones the ball back with a block with 42 seconds left.

    The Cyclones would have likely put the game away earlier, but they shot just 13 of 21 from the free-throw line in the second half.

    Trey Zeigler had 19 points for Central Michigan, which lost its fourth game in five tries.
