The Big 12 admits officiating mistakes were made in Iowa State’s overtime loss to Kansas but that doesn’t change the fact it’s still a ‘L’ in the record books.
Work still needs to be done for the Cyclones to make the big dance.
It was a great chance to flush the KU loss with a win on the road Saturday at Oklahoma.
After falling behind by 10, Tyrus McGee launches from nowhere adding to a game high of 22.
Melvin Ejim, the leading rebounder can shoot it from deep, he gets 10 and gets the lead down to 4..
But Sam Grooms, just before the half – from deep – Sooners lead 40-28 at the break.
In the 2nd half, Georges Niang helps cut it to 9 but the Cyclones just don’t have it on the day.
Helping them on their way to victory, the Sooners tie an NCAA record going a perfect 34 of 34 from the free throw line.
Oklahoma wins 86-69. The Clones are back home Wednesday against Oklahoma State.
