DES MOINES, Iowa -- Junior Melvin Ejim notched his 11th career double-double with 21 points and 11 rebounds as Iowa State beat Drake 86-77 Saturday in a contest marred by fouls.

Ejim returned to the starting lineup after one game off the bench and responded with his fourth double-double of the season to lead the Cyclones (8-3).

Drake (4-5) was down six with 3:13 left when Iowa State's Will Clyburn stole a pass under the Bulldogs basket for a decisive dunk and three-point play.

Clyburn finished with 17 points and 10 boards.

Seth VanDeest had 18 points to lead the Bulldogs, who committed four straight turnovers down the stretch and had 31 of the game's astounding 52 fouls.
