Jacob Evans III made two free throws with 20 seconds left in overtime and Cincinnati upset No. 19 Iowa State 55-54 on Thursday night, the Cyclones' second straight loss.

Kyle Washington had 13 points and 10 rebounds and Evans had 11 points for the Bearcats (6-1), who also snapped Iowa State's 37-game non-conference home winning streak.

Cincinnati outrebounded the smaller Cyclones 46-34. It shot just 3 of 21 from 3-point range and 35.5 percent overall, but its defense stifled Iowa State (5-2) down the stretch.

Monte Morris had 15 points for the Cyclones and Matt Thomas scored 13. Iowa State's Naz Mitrou-Long, who has hit a number of game-winning 3s in his career, had one rim out at the regulation buzzer. He did not score.

The Cyclones have their last two by a total of three points after a 5-0 start.
