AMES, Iowa — Izaiah Brockington had 23 points and 13 rebounds, Tyrese Hunter scored nine of his 19 points in the final 96 seconds and Iowa State held on Tuesday for a 68-60 win over Alabama State. 

Brockington grabbed an offensive rebound off a missed 3-point shot by Hunter and threw down a dunk. Hunter, on the ensuing possession, jumped into the passing lane for a steal that he took the other way and finished through contact on a fast-break dunk. 

His and-1 free throw pushed the lead to 61-53 with 1:36 to play. 

Hunter went 6 for 6 from the foul line from there.
