AMES, Iowa -- Dustin Hogue set career highs with 22 points and 16 rebounds, and 17th-ranked Iowa State pounded Auburn 99-70 on Monday night for its sixth consecutive win.

Melvin Ejim added 14 points and 10 rebounds for the Cyclones (6-0), who are the Big 12's last unbeaten team.

No. 12 Connecticut beats No. 15 Florida 65-64

STORRS, Conn. -- Shabazz Napier hit a jumper from the free-throw line as time expired to keep No. 12 Connecticut undefeated with a 65-64 victory against No. 15 Florida on Monday night.

Napier, limping on a left ankle he hurt during a four-point play with 33 seconds left, escaped a trap around 30 feet from the basket and got off a wild shot that missed but was tipped blindly back by DeAndre Daniels. Napier grabbed the ball and let go a left-handed jumper that went through as the horn sounded and set off a deafening cheer from the sellout crowd of 10,167 at Gampel Pavilion.

Napier finished with 26 points on 9 of 15 shooting including making 5 of 8 from 3-point range.

The Huskies (8-0) and Florida (6-2), which had a five-game winning streak snapped, battled down the stretch exchanging the lead six times in the final 6 minutes.
