AMES, Iowa (AP) Royce White hit the game-winning jumper with 1.8 seconds left as Iowa State rallied from a 14-point deficit to beat Kansas State 72-70 on Tuesday night. White finished with 22 points and Chris Allen had 15 for the Cyclones (16-6, 6-3 Big 12), who’ve won four of their last five. Iowa State’s Chris Babb tied the game at 70 on a pair of free throws with 49 seconds left. The Cyclones then corralled a loose ball to gain possession with the shot clock off, and White drove to the baseline and floated in the deciding bucket from about 8 feet. The Cyclones knocked the ball out of the hands of Kansas State’s Will Spradling at the buzzer. Thomas Gipson led the Wildcats (15-6, 4-5) with 13 points.
The K-State men will host Texas A&M at 3:00pm on Saturday afternoon. Powercat Gameday begins at 1:00 on SportsRadio 1350 KMAN with Rob Voelker and Cole Manbeck of the Manhattan Mercury.
