Georges Niang scored 24 points, including the go-ahead basket with 18.8 seconds left, and 17th-ranked Iowa State rallied to beat No. 23 Iowa 85-82 on Friday night.

Dustin Hogue had 12 points and 16 rebounds for the Cyclones (8-0), who prevailed in the first meeting between the Cyclones and Hawkeyes as ranked teams in 26 years.

Niang gave Iowa State an 83-82 lead on a reverse layup — and Iowa's Mike Gesell followed by missing two free throws. Hogue then buried two foul shots, and Zach McCabe's attempt for a tying 3 fell short for Iowa (10-2).

Aaron White had 25 points and a career-high 17 rebounds for the Hawkeyes, who led by as much as 10 late in the first half.
