With a large contingent of Iowa State fans clearly outnumbering the Oklahoma followers, the Cyclones advanced to the Big 12 tournament semifinals.
Iowa State coach Fred Hoiberg says a victory in Kansas City was long overdue.
"We haven't won here in seven years and you can see by our fan support we've got as good a fan support as anybody down here," says Hoiberg. "To get this win for them is really special."
Iowa State will play the winner of this afternoon's game between Kansas and Texas Tech on Saturday night at 6:30.
