I remember watching this game and thinking that Iowa State was cooked after a fairly convincing run my UNC. Then they just kept churning and chipping their way back. The tying 3-dagger by Naz (and frankly, a spot on pass by MVP Kane) was amazingly. The temper tantrum by Roy… Chef’s kiss.

Those were some golden days of the Hoiberg era.

The games were never, ever over.

Damn, that game feels like it was just yesterday sometimes. Maybe I’m wrong, but I have to think that if we get past UCONN that was our year. Only other team with better odds would have been what- 2000?
"If" Niang didn't get hurt, that would have been a very deep run, we were a dangerous team peaking at the right time. We beat UNC without Niang, and gave Uconn all they could handle.

The field was wide open and they likely aren't favored the rest of the way but they may had a chance.

It helped that one of UNC's big men went out.

48-28 to 48-50. I’m not old enough to have experienced the first run of Hilton magic, but that game is the first one I think of when you talk about Hilton Magic.
I’m not sure of the genesis of Hilton Magic, but here’s one a few decades earlier. Freddie was a part of this one as a player. The noise in Hilton was unbelievable.

I was at this game in San Antonio and what a win after the crushing news that niang was injured
