Current Records: Arkansas-Pine Bluff 1-7; Iowa State 6-0

What to Know

The #19 Iowa State Cyclones will take on the Arkansas-Pine Bluff Golden Lions at 8 p.m. ET on Wednesday at James H. Hilton Coliseum. Coming off of a win even when the odds were against them, Iowa State has to be feeling especially confident now that the spread is in their favor.

The Cyclones strolled past the Memphis Tigers with points to spare last Friday, taking the game 78-59. Iowa State's guard Gabe Kalscheur looked sharp as he had 30 points along with eight rebounds and five steals.

Meanwhile, even if it wasn't a dominant performance, Arkansas-Pine Bluff beat the Arkansas Baptist Buffaloes 75-70 on Monday.

This next matchup looks promising for Iowa State, who are favored by a full 27.5 points. Those who got lucky with them against the spread last week might want to hold off on placing bets this time since the squad has yet to string together back-to-back wins against the spread.

Their wins bumped Iowa State to 6-0 and the Golden Lions to 1-7. We'll see which team can carry over their success and which team inevitably falls when the Cyclones and Arkansas-Pine Bluff clash.
