AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State fans gave Lipscomb’s Jordan Burgason a standing ovation when he left the game for good. It might have been partly from relief because with the Ames native finally on the bench, he couldn’t do any more damage. Burgason tied a Hilton Coliseum record with nine 3-point baskets and scored 30 points, but Iowa State got a season-high 24 points from Scott Christopherson and 23 from Chris Allen to beat the Bison 81-64 Wednesday night for its fourth straight victory. Burgason, whose father Steve played at Iowa State from 1974-78, hit 10 of 16 shots, including 9 of 14 from 3-point range. He fell one point short of matching his career high.  Lipscomb (6-8) was playing the fourth of seven straight road games. The Bison have lost all four.
