    How close was Iowa State to a 1 seed for B12 Tourney?

    Good 'N Plenty: Cats-Heels iffy, but would be great First Four matchup - NCAA Division I Mens Basketball - CBSSports.com News, Scores, Stats, Schedule and RPI Rankings

    Cyclone four plays out of Big 12 lead


    Four plays separate Iowa State from being in first place in the Big 12.
    Jan. 9 -- Ben McLemore drills a 3-pointer with one second left in regulation to force overtime. Kansas hangs on for the win in Lawrence.
    Jan. 30 -- Another star freshman, Marcus Smart, sinks the game-winning 3-pointer with 3.1 seconds left in the game. This was nearly an upset in Stillwater over what is now a ranked team.
    Feb. 9 -- Texas frosh Ionnis Papetrou knocks down a trifecta in Austin with two ticks on the clock to send it to overtime. The Longhorns wind up winning, 89-86, in double-overtime.
    Feb. 25 -- Everyone saw the call with five seconds left in the game. It was a charge, but instead Elijah Johnson was given two free throws and made both to send the game into overtime -- where Kansas wound up knocking off the Cyclones in Ames.
    So, now Fred Hoiberg's team sits on the bubble at 19-9 overall and in a tie for fifth place in the Big 12 at 9-6. He was obviously irate after the loss to Kansas, but said now the key becomes how his team responds from the latest close loss.
    "We've been able to do it before," Hoiberg said. "Our guys have responded all year. I'm confident they'll do it again."
    Hoiberg said he watched the tape of the game twice when he got home on Monday night and went to bed around 4 a.m. That meant he also had to watch one of his 9-year-old twins breaking down on television as the Jayhawks were en route to victory in overtime.
    "It broke my heart," he said. "He's a passionate kid. It brought a tear to my eye. ... That's how I was as a kid back when my team lost. "
    But this one was obviously more difficult to swallow than the others. It was the resume win necessary to make sure the Cyclones got on the right side of The Bubble. It also came courtesy of two blown calls -- one on the Johnson drive and another on what should have been Jeff Withey's fifth foul. Hoiberg said he received a phone call from Big 12 supervisor of officials Curtis Shaw on Tuesday, but did not want to go into details.

    ISU needs to get some breaks, right????!?

    I really think this puts ISU on the right side of the bubble as long as they continue to take care of business.

    I've been saying this all season...crazy hiw close we are to a league title. To be fair, 2 free throws made by KL in either KU game and we are halfway there.

    Unless we lay an egg in the remaining conference games, we're gonna be okay.

    How close was ISU to going all the way in 99-00?
    How close was ISU to taking down Florida State in Kansas City?

    Did we run out of gas?

    The TT game also should have gone a different way.

    So if we had only four losses that would be competitive with the top teams who have four losses. And then there is Gonzaga.

    I believe when KL went to the line in the last KU game, ISU had made 22 straight. Should he have made it? Yes. But statistics say that we were going to miss one eventually.

    You can say that for @KU, but not for the game in Ames. It would not have sealed the game by any means. Do not blame KL at all.

    Oops you're right. Misread the TT one. We were down 1. Okay 13-2. So at least that's one less lead we've lost in the last 4 min. Yay!!

    I didn't go back and see how much we've been outscored. That would be depressing.

    Agreed. Hadn't they made 22 straight free throws leading up to that? That's a crazy streak. It was overdue to break.
