Jacob Pullen Hits Game Winning Shot As Kansas State Tops Iowa State, 86-85

Jacob Pullen pulled a trick out of his hat at the perfect time. The Kansas State Wildcats guard hit a layup with 2.6 seconds remaining to give K-State a victory over the Iowa State Cyclones in a wild college basketball Saturday. The final score was 86-85 in favor of the Wildcats.

Pullen scored 17 of his 21 total points in the second half but it was the last one that meant the most. Pullen also hit a three pointer with 53 seconds remaining to bring them to within one, 85-84. He added eight assists in the game as well as two steals, both of which lead the team. 

Iowa State's Diante Garrett had 23 points while Scott Christopherson added 22 points in the loss for the Cyclones. 

Kansas State has now won two in a row as they move to 16-8 on the season and 4-5 in the Big 12. Kansas State shot 50 percent from the field and 51 percent from beyond the three point line. 

Kansas State faces Colorado next week before a Valentine's Day rematch against Kansas.
