Iowa State upsets No. 3 Kansas at home

  Iowa State defeated Kansas at Allen Fieldhouse on Saturday afternoon.

Fifty-four games. One-thousand one-hundred and twenty-six days. That’s how long it had been since Kansas lost a game at home.

Until now.

Unranked Iowa State — a team with losses to Iowa and Vanderbilt — came to Allen Fieldhouse, overcame a 14-point halftime deficit, pushed the Jayhawks to overtime, and knocked off the No. 3 team in the nation, 92-89.

At the end of regulation, Kansas guard Frank Mason had a career-high 32 points on 9-10 shooting. The only miss? A last-second go-ahead look at the end of the second half that bounced off the back iron, forcing the extra period. Mason wouldn’t score again.

Iowa State had three players with 20 points or more. Nazareth Mitrou-Long had 22 thanks to 6-11 from beyond the arc, Deonte Burton posted 29 while shooting 7-9 from three and Monte Morris dropped 25.

The Cyclones shot 50 percent from the field and a staggering 18-34 (52.9 percent) from three-point range. Those 18 threes were also a school record, breaking the previous mark of 17, which the Cyclones set in 2013… against Kansas. 

In overtime, Iowa State never trailed. Kansas managed to push the game to one point twice in the final minute, but a pair of Morris free throws with eight seconds left extended the visitor’s lead to what proved to be an insurmountable three points.

The loss was just Kansas' third of the season, but second in the last two weeks. Iowa State moved to 14-8 on the year, picking up its first win against a ranked opponent this year after four losses to top-25 teams on the season.
