AMES, Iowa — Senior Michael Jacobson scored 19 points on 8 of 9 shooting and Iowa State beat the University of Missouri-Kansas City 79-61.

Tyrese Haliburton added 19 points and seven assists for the Cyclones, who won despite another frigid night from beyond the arc.

Iowa State finished just 5 of 21 on 3s.

UMKC (5-5) got as close as 57-54 with 6:37 left.

The Cyclones responded with six quick points, and Rasir Bolton's 3-point dunk pushed their lead to 69-58, and Haliburton and Bolton followed with 3 that sealed a win that was much uglier than the final score suggested.
