AMES, Iowa (AP) -- Percy Gibson scored 15 points in his first start, 13 in the opening half, and Iowa State broke out of a two-game shooting slump with an 84-59 victory over Prairie View A&M on Tuesday night.
Gibson, a freshman, started in place of Royce White, the team's leading scorer and rebounder, and came up big in helping the Cyclones (6-3) regain their touch after shooting just 39 percent in consecutive losses to Northern Iowa and Michigan.
Chris Allen had 16 points for the Cyclones, who shot 55 percent in the first half and 52 percent for the game. White, who entered the game after the first media timeout, and Tyrus McGee each added 12 points.
Jourdan DeMuynck's 18 points led Prairie View (2-7), which lost its seventh straight.
