Iowa State is flying home from its holiday trip to Hawaii with three more wins and its best start in school history. The No. 14 Cyclones beat Boise State 70-66 on Wednesday night to win the Diamond Head Classic, recovering from a season-low 27 points in the first half. ”We’ve only played eight games coming into this tournament so it was very important to get these and take care of business and give us some momentum heading into conference,” Iowa State coach Fred Hoiberg said. Iowa State beat George Mason and Akron to get to the final.
