Kansas State ekes out one-point win over Iowa State in Ames
The Wildcats topped the Cyclones by a score of 58-57 thanks to a Barry Brown game-winning drive. Iowa State is ranked 20th, and the Big 12 remains one of the most competitive leagues in America.
Kansas State and Iowa State are now both 12-4 with 2-2 records in conference play. And as usual, the defense carried the Wildcats. K-State ranked ninth in the country in defensive efficiency coming into Saturday and held the high-flying Cyclone offense to 57 points. Another nice win for Bruce Weber and company.
Louisville smokes North Carolina in Chapel Hill
Certainly didn’t see this one coming. Louisville was in control from start to finish, handing the No. 12 Tar Heels their fourth loss in decisive fashion. The Cardinals won by a score of 83-62.
#CARDNATION STAND UP!
The Tar Heels had their worst shooting game of the season, finishing 3-for-22 from 3-point range. Luke Maye and Coby White only combined to score 13 points.
Louisville also dominated on the glass, which is rare against North Carolina. The Cardinals won the rebounding edge 43-32. Steven Enoch was the best player on either side, nothing 17 points and 11 rebounds off the bench.
This was an important day for Louisville’s NCAA tournament hopes.
