Iowa State’s unbeaten streak has come to an end. 

The No. 9 Cyclones (14-1, 2-1 Big 12) fell on to Oklahoma (13-3) on the road ending the longest winning streak in program history Saturday. Iowa State fell behind by as many as 13 points in the second half, and a late run came up short as the Sooners prevailed, 87-82.

Iowa State allowed 13 offensive rebounds and Oklahoma hit 13 3-pointers to the Cyclones’ six, who also turned the ball over 13 times in the loss. 

DeAndre Kane scored 23 points in the loss to go with nine rebounds. With less than one minute remaining, Kane went to the ground under the hoop, appearing to roll his ankle. The senior guard was helped off the court.

According to reporters in Oklahoma, Kane said following the game X-Rays on his left ankle came back negative. His status for Monday’s game remains uncertain. 

Melvin Ejim added 21 points, Georges Niang scored 14 and Dustin Hogue added 13 points in the loss. 

The Cyclones were one of five remaining unbeaten teams entering Saturday’s game. Iowa State was the final school with both its men and women’s program undefeated. 

Iowa State returns to the court at 8 p.m. Monday at Hilton Coliseum to take on No. 18 Kansas.
