Questions about Iowa State’s ability to shoot the three-point ball have circled Steve Prohm’s club all season

That all changed on Tuesday.

Thanks to sharpshooting performances from Tyrese Haliburton and Rasir Bolton, the Cyclones put up video game numbers in the three-point department to beat Oklahoma State [SCORE].

In the first half, Bolton led the charge behind the arc with three early threes and the first nine points for the Cyclones. After some key post play from forward Solomon Young, Haliburton got into the mix and added four threes of his own before the half was over.

The sophomores kept it up in the second half. Bolton got to the line a six times, converting on all six, and he also added more perimeter shooting along with his partner in the back court.
