Third Round Highlights: (3) Iowa State 85 – (6) North Carolina 83

03/23/2014

DeAndre Kane, Monte Morris, Daniel EdozieSAN ANTONIO, TX – Iowa State’s DeAndre Kane drove the lane and made a lay up with less than two seconds remaining, capping off a back-and-forth slugfest in the final minutes to defeat North Carolina 85-83.

The Tar Heels appeared to get the ball past mid-court and call a timeout before time expired, but a clock malfunction on the inbound pass caused confusion on how much time was left and when all was said and done, officials determined the game was over. Third-seeded Iowa State advances to the Sweet 16 where they’ll face seventh-seeded Connecticut.

Kane led the Cyclones with 24 points and 10 rebounds and Melvin Ejim scored 19 for an Iowa State team missing its star forward Georges Niang, who will miss the rest of the tournament with a fractured foot. Roy Williams’ Tar Heels had all five starters scoring in double digits, but failed to stop Iowa State on its final two possessions.

Brad Sham and Will Perdue called the action on WestwoodOne Sports.
