By Chris Williams, CycloneFanatic.com Publisher Follow Chris on Twitter @ChrisMWilliams AMES — Iowa State’s first two field goals in Saturday’s 82-73 loss to No. 10 Kansas came from an unusual combination. Royce White for three! Melvin Ejim…for three! Wait…What? It marked the first 3-point field goal of White’s collegiate career. Ejim is a 23 percent 3-point shooter (6-of-26 on the season). Big men shooting the rock was contagious for the Cyclones, on Saturday at least. Junior Anthony Booker went 3-for-5 from behind the arc. He’s now 10-for-16 from downtown on the season. Booker’s emergence as a threat off of the bench has been especially important for the Cyclones since Big 12 play began two weeks ago. “It stretches the defense out,” said associate head coach T.J. Otzelberger. “It allows there to be more open lanes for other guys. It creates space for Royce getting to the basket.” A big man who can shoot makes life easier on everybody in Fred Hoiberg’s offense. Think Jamie Vanderbek
