AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State students teased Oklahoma State's Marcus Smart on Saturday by doing a "mass flop" in the stands at Hilton Coliseum when the Cowboys' star was introduced by the public address announcer before the game.

The stunt was organized by Iowa State junior Michael Harris and fliers with instructions for fans were handed out to those in the student section before the game. Harris says he was inspired by Smart's "infamous" reputation around the Big 12 for trying to draw fouls by flopping.

Smart leads the Cowboys with 17.6 points and 4.7 assists per game. He was suspended for three games after shoving a Texas Tech fan who was taunting him last month.
