Big 12 acknowledges officials' mistake in ISU, Kansas game

Posted:
AMES (KWWL) -

The Big 12 Conference admitted that officials made a mistake in the final minute of the Iowa State, Kansas game Monday evening.  The mistake in question likely cost the Cyclones their biggest win of the season.

With under 10 seconds remaining, and Iowa State leading by 2, Kansas guard Elijah Johnson ran over Iowa State's Georges Niang.  The Cyclone forward appeared to be set, but no whistle blew until a couple seconds later when Niang was called for a foul in the ensuing scramble.  That foul led to two free throws by Johnson to send the game to overtime where the Jayhawks would outscore the Cyclones by 12.

Tuesday afternoon, the Big 12 released the following statement about the incident:

"The Big 12 acknowledges that officiating errors were made at the end of regulation during last night's Kansas at Iowa State game. The plays have been reviewed and appropriate measures will be taken by the Coordinator of Men's Basketball Officials to adjust the number of future assignments for the two officials involved in conjunction with Conference policies."

The victory by Kansas snapped Iowa State's 22 game home winning streak, while putting the Cyclones NCAA tournament hopes in jeopardy.  Most prognosticators still have Iowa State making the field of 68.
