AMES, Iowa (AP) - Georges Niang and Monte Morris each scored 24 points as No. 14 Iowa State beat 24th-ranked Texas 85-75 Saturday night in Jameel McKay's return from a two-game suspension.

Matt Thomas added 13 for the Cyclones (18-7, 7-5 Big 12), who allowed just one point in the final 2:29 to hold off the Longhorns.

Morris' step-back jumper with 1:17 left made it 81-74, and Niang's layup 35 seconds later sealed the win for Iowa State.

Javan Felix had 13 of his 18 points in the second half to lead Texas (16-9, 7-5), which has dropped two straight.

McKay, who had been suspended for violating team rules, finished with eight points, seven rebounds and four blocks.
