|Iowa State Stuns #5 Kansas St. in OT
|MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) -- Diante Garrett scored five points in overtime and Iowa State stunned No. 5 Kansas State 85-82 on Saturday, snapping a 21-game losing streak to ranked teams.
The Cyclones (15-16, 4-12 Big 12) hadn't won in Manhattan since 2001 and were 7-104 in their last 111 games against ranked teams on the road before coming in Saturday as 15-point underdogs.
Kansas State (24-6, 11-5), the No. 2 seed in next week's Big 12 tournament, shot a miserable 34 percent for the game but still managed to forge a 74-all tie and send the game into overtime when Denis Clemente hit his second 3-pointer in 12 attempts with a little more than a minute left.
Craig Brackins had 19 points before fouling out for Iowa State, which had lost seven of nine. Scott Christopherson had 18 points and Marquis Gilstrap 13.
