(AMES, Iowa) — Melvin Ejim had himself a day on Saturday in Iowa State’s 84-69 win over TCU.
Ejim made 20 of 24 shots and scored a Big-12 record 48 points along with pulling in 18 rebounds in the victory.
The senior scored 20 straight for the Cyclones at one point during the second half and forward Georges Niang was the second leading scorer with 11 points.
“It was teamwork,” said Ejim, who recorded his 30th double-double of his career. “These guys just did a great job finding me in transition and getting me the ball in places where I could score. They made really selfless plays. We were just giving up the ball and luckily, I was on the receiving end.”
Kyan Anderson led the Horned Frogs with 27 points and eight assists in the loss.
The Cyclones are now 18-4 in the Big-12. TCU drops to 9-13.
