AMES, Iowa (KCRG) - After a couple of weeks of searching, Iowa State found some of that "Hilton Magic" on Saturday after beating Oklahoma, 81-68. It's the Cyclones' first Big 12 win of the season.

Oklahoma grabbed an early 14-10 lead, until Terrence Lewis provided a spark off the bench for the Cyclones with 10 points, eight of which came during a crucial 10-0 run.

That sparked the Cyclones' offense as they led by as many as 26 points. Sophomore Rasir Bolton had the hot hand finishing with 23 points, tying a season-high 10 field goals made. Tyrese Haliburton added 15 points.

Iowa State travels to No. 4 Baylor on Wednesday.
