Stinson Leads ISU Past Monterrey Tech

<b>MONTERREY, Mexico--</b> Curtis Stinson poured in 16 points and Jared Homan added 15 points, as Iowa State downed Monterrey Tech, 68-53 in its first exhibition game on its Mexican Tour Saturday evening in Monterrey, Mexico.

"This game was extremely valuable," ISU head coach Wayne Morgan said. "It gave us a chance to see our kids against some good competition. It also gave us a chance to see what we need to work on, as well as some of our strengths. I was impressed with the depth of our team."

Stinson, who was 8-for-18 from the floor, tallied five assists in the game and helped ISU outscore MTU 20-9 in the third quarter as the Cyclones took a 57-36 lead heading into the final period.

Homan, a senior from Remsen, Iowa, was ISU's leader on the boards, tallying 12 caroms to post a double-double. Damion Staple added nine rebounds to the Cyclone effort. Will Blalock and John Neal scored 10 and nine points, respectively, combining for 9-of-15 shooting from the field. Junior college transfer Anthony Davis scored seven points and grabbed five boards.

Iowa State will play again tonight and finish up its three-game set vs. Monterrey Tech on Monday.
