AMES, Iowa – Iowa State guards Naz Long and DeAndre Kane earned Phillips 66 Big 12 Player and Newcomer of the Week awards for their performances in Sunday’s season opening win against UNC Wilmington. Kane shared the newcomer of the week honor with Oklahoma’s Ryan Spangler.

In his first career start, Long posted a career-best 26 points (previous high was seven) with two rebounds and two assists in the Cyclones’ 95-62 win over UNCW. The sophomore guard was 9-of-12 (.750) from the field, including 8-of-11 (.727) from 3-point range. The eight 3-pointers ties for the third-most in school history. During his freshman campaign last year, Long scored a total of 25 points and made five 3-pointers for the entire season.

Kane narrowly missed a triple-double in his debut with the Cyclones despite playing just 25 minutes. The senior guard finished with 13 points, a career-high tying 11 rebounds and seven assists in the ISU victory. He had just one turnover and finished 4-of-6 (.667) from the field while making all five attempts from the free throw line.

Iowa State returns to action Tuesday when it hosts Texas A&M-Corpus Christi at 7 p.m. will broadcast the game.
