SOUTH PADRE ISLAND, Texas (AP) -- Chris Allen scored 15 points, Royce White pulled down 16 rebounds, and Iowa State won its third-round game Friday at the South Padre Island Invitational, beating Providence 64-54.

Tyrus McGee added 14 points for the Cyclones (4-1), who led by just four, 56-52, with 3:17 to play before a Bubu Palo jumper, a pair of McGee free throws and an Allen 3-pointer put the game away.

Vincent Council led the Friars (4-1) with 21 points, and Gerard Coleman had 20 points and eight rebounds. The two were a combined 17 for 36 (47 percent) from the field, but their teammates were just 5 for 19 (26 percent).

Iowa State led by as many as seven in the first half, but Providence rallied after halftime to take a 34-33 lead on a Coleman 3-pointer. A White dunk and two Chris Babb 3s quickly put the Cyclones back up by seven.
