No. 17 Iowa State beats No. 23 Iowa 85-82
IOWA ST 85, IOWA 82

AMES, Iowa (AP) -- The noise was deafening even before Iowa's
Mike Gesell missed a potential tying free throw with 13 seconds
left.

Then Hilton Coliseum started shaking.

At least that's how it must have felt to the shell-shocked
Hawkeyes.

Georges Niang scored 24 points, including the go-ahead basket
with 18.8 seconds left, and 17th-ranked Iowa State rallied past
No. 23 Iowa 85-82 on Friday night.

Niang's reverse layup gave Iowa State an 83-82 lead. Gesell then
missed two free throws as the frenzied fans rose to their feet -
and aired out their lungs - in hopes of rattling one of the
Cyclones' biggest rivals.

Dustin Hogue then buried two foul shots and Zach McCabe, who
entered play shooting 48.5 percent on 3-pointers, missed a
wide-open 3 for Iowa (10-2).

"You could feel the vibrations in the building again. Just an
unbelievable atmosphere," Iowa State coach Fred Hoiberg said.

Hogue had 12 points and 16 rebounds for the Cyclones (8-0), who
prevailed in the first meeting between the Cyclones and Hawkeyes
as ranked teams in 26 years.

Aaron White had 25 points and a career-high 17 rebounds for the
Hawkeyes, who led by as much as 10 late in the first half and
outrebounded the Cyclones 49-35.

Iowa and Iowa State spent the final 10 minutes trading baskets
in one of the most entertaining games in a rivalry that
stretches back over a century.

The final minute belonged to the resilient Cyclones.

The Hawkeyes had the ball up 82-79 with less than a minute left.
But White turned it over in an uncharacteristic mistake during
what was arguably his best game for Iowa.

Melvin Ejim hit two free throws and Devyn Marble missed one,
giving Niang his chance to drive beneath the basket for a tough
scoop shot that proved to be the difference.

Ejim had 22 points and seven rebounds and Naz Long had 13 points
for Iowa State.

"That's the toughest part about it. We executed the whole game.
We did a lot of things that we came into the game saying we had
to do if we want to win this game, like rebounding," Gesell
said. "Just little plays down the stretch that killed us."

This was Iowa's first true road game - in one of the most
hostile environments it'll play in all season.

It didn't faze the Hawkeyes in the first half.

Iowa jumped out to an early lead, helping quiet the raucous
crowd. The Hawkeyes showed their impressive depth with multiple
baskets from five different players, and White's 13 points
helped them build a 45-38 lead.

The Cyclones might have been out of the game by halftime if not
for Niang's 16 first-half points.

Iowa State was able to pull even at 62 with just over 10 minutes
left - and Hogue's 3-point play made it 65-62 Cyclones.

"I felt like we were stuck in the mud the whole game. We
couldn't really get to our type of game of getting up and down
and getting things going and making 3s," Niang said. "I just
think we did a good job being persistent in attacking them and
it paid off."

Marble had 19 points and six assists for the Hawkeyes. But he
and Gesell missed crucial free throws they would typically
expect to make.

Iowa was just 50 percent from the line in the second half.

"Those are the guys I would have picked. I know they feel
terrible right now. I feel for them," Iowa coach Fran McCaffery
said. "But if I could have who I want I would pick those two
guys."

Though Iowa and Iowa State have been at each other's throats for
decades, many of those games were irrelevant nationally.

It's been a long time since the Hawkeyes and Cyclones were this
good this early.

The last time Iowa and Iowa State met as ranked opponents was in
1987 in perhaps the most illustrious of the 66 previous meetings
between the heated instate rivals.

That game, which was also in Ames, will long remembered as the
one when Cyclones star Lafester Rhodes scored 54 points to lead
Iowa State past Iowa 102-100 in overtime.

This one also wound up being quite memorable for the Cyclones.

"I honestly have no idea how we won that game. I look at the box
score and they crushed us on the glass and they beat us in
transition," Hoiberg said. "I give the credit to this game to
our fans. No way in heck we win this game without them."
