Iowa takes down Iowa State (0:38)

Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

Iowa's 78-64 win over rival No. 25 Iowa State is a major victory for a Hawkeyes team that recently lost to Nebraska-Omaha and suffered a lopsided loss to Virginia a few weeks ago. It's the kind of the game Fran McCaffery's team can use to get its season back on track.

Why the Big 12 is stronger than the ACC

The Big 12 is powerful at the top (Kansas, Baylor) and could conceivably get all 10 teams into the NCAA tournament while the ACC's weakest teams hurt its depth.

Iowa State coach Steve Prohm said 6-8 freshman Solomon Young could play Monday against Omaha after practicing Sunday. He has missed the last four games with a fracture in his left hand. The Cyclones opted to rest it instead of surgery. Iowa State missed his size and production (8.7 ppg, 5.3 rpg, 15 mpg).

Survive. Gonzaga holds on to beat Iowa State in what felt like a second-weekend NCAA game. Cyclones will be a factor in Big 12. Seniors won't quit. Burton will stuff the stat sheet. Zags will get better as Collins and Tillie improve.

Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

Gonzaga did a great job defending Iowa State on the final possession in the Advocare Invitational championship. Cyclones stormed back after early double-digit deficit. But Mark Few's Zags also demonstrated their resilience down the stretch. Zags have a special group this season.
