The fourth-ranked Iowa State Cyclones pulled off another stunner on Thursday, beating back rival Iowa Hawkeyes with a furious late surge.

 width=Monte Morris hit a runner with nine seconds left and Iowa State rallied from a 20-point deficit to down Iowa 83-82 on Thursday night.

Morris and Jameel McKay each had 20 points for the Cyclones (8-0), who scored the game's final nine points to remain unbeaten.

But rallies like that are nothing new for these Cyclones, who roared back from 21 down to stun Oklahoma and 17 down to beat Kansas in the Big 12 Tournament title game last March.

A 30-11 run brought Iowa State within 82-81 with 51 seconds left. Morris then drove the lane and floated in the go-ahead shot, which the Cyclones made stand with one final defensive stop.

Jarrod Uthoff scored 30 of his 32 points in the first half for Iowa (7-3), which has lost seven straight in Ames.
