AMES (AP) — Iowa State coach Steve Prohm planned to change his starting lineup and give his bench more playing time in Saturday night’s 81-68 win over Oklahoma.

Both moves proved to be productive.

“I wanted to give the bench a chance to play, see if they could give us a spark, and they did,” Prohm said.

Rasir Bolton led the Cyclones (8-7, 1-2 Big 12) with 23 points and his less-used teammates provided a much-needed boost throughout, outscoring the Sooners’ backups, 28-13 — including 18-0 in the first half.

Iowa State reserve Tre Jackson scored a career-high 12 points on 4-of-5 shooting from beyond the arc and fellow backup Terrence Lewis added 10 points.

Jackson hadn’t made more than one 3-pointer in a game since hitting two in a 104-89 win over Alabama on Nov. 28 in the Bahamas.

“My confidence is always high,” Jackson said. “I’m going to keep on shooting any time I get the ball.

Tyrese Haliburton chipped in 15 points and a game-high eight assists for Iowa State, which was coming off a 26-point home loss to Kansas on Wednesday.

Brady Manek led the Sooners with 17 points and Kristian Doolittle added 14 points and five rebounds.

Iowa State plays at No. 4 Baylor on Wednesday.
