In 2015, the Baylor Bears handed the Iowa State Cyclones their only home loss of the season.

In 2016, the Bears turned the trick again, become the first road team to earn a win this year at Hilton Coliseum after a come-from-behind 94-89 win in Saturday Big 12 action.

Iowa State got off to a good start. Sharp shooting from the field and a string of turnovers by Baylor helped ISU build leads that stretched into the double digits throughout the first 20 minutes.

A late flurry by the Bears left them down by just four points at halftime before the second-half surge gave them a late lead that they wouldn't relinquish.

Baylor was led by Jonathan Motley with a career-high 27 points as well as 13 rebounds. Taurean Prince also posted a double-double with 18 points and 10 rebounds, as did point guard Lester Medford with 11 points and 10 assists.

For Iowa State, four of their five starters finished in double-digit scoring. Georges Niang led the way with 22 points and eight rebounds, but was shut down as Baylor took over the game after a defensive switchup by coach Scott Drew.

The loss will give No. 13 Iowa State a much tougher road to a Big 12 title this season—and leave the Cyclones scratching their heads after their third straight defeat by Baylor.
