AMES, Iowa (AP) - Craig Brackins scored 26 points and grabbed 10 rebounds as Iowa State crushed Colorado 70-42 on Wednesday night, snapping a six-game losing streak.

The Cyclones held the hapless Buffaloes to a Big 12 record-low nine points in the first half. Iowa State led by as much as 36 and cruised to their 17th victory in 18 home games against Colorado.

Iowa State (13-11, 2-7 Big 12) opened the game on a 34-6 run -
scoring 21 straight points during one stretch - and led 37-9 at halftime. Ten different players scored for the Cyclones, but Brackins was only one in double figures.

Dwight Thorne II was the only player to score during a miserable first half for Colorado (9-14, 1-8), which extended its conference road losing streak to 26 games. He led the Buffs with 14 points.

Colorado, which threw a scare into No. 2 Oklahoma before losing 77-72 on Saturday, shot 31 percent from the field and had as many turnovers, 13, as field goals.
