Northern Illinois (18-2, 8-1 Missouri Valley) overcame a 12-point deficit in the final 11 minutes. Seth Tuttle scored 21 for the Panthers and Jeremy Morgan made three steals and blocked a shot down the stretch.

Daishon Knight drove the lane at the end for Illinois State (12-8, 4-4), but his short shot hit the bottom of the rim as the horn sounded. Knight fell to the floor after the miss.

Kelsey Lang led Texas (14-4, 3-4) with 12 points, but she attempted only one shot in the second half while surrounded by defenders. Texas, which has lost four of its last five games, took a 54-52 lead with 2:15 remaining on a 3-point basket by freshman McCarty. Lang, swarmed by defenders inside, passed the ball out to McCarty.

After a missed jump shot by Moody, Texas forward Nekia Jones converted a three-point play with 55 seconds left. Bryanna Ferstrom made a layup for Iowa State that left the Cyclones trailing by a point with 33 seconds left.

Texas Tech upsets No. 9 Iowa State 78-73


January 24th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — Devaugntah Williams scored a career-high 22 points and Toddrick Gotcher added 17, leading Texas Tech over No. 9 Iowa State 78-73 Saturday for its first Big 12 win. Fans swarmed the court after the victory. Gotcher made five of Texas Tech’s 11 3-pointers, tying the team’s high for the season. Williams, a junior transfer, added three 3s.

The Red Raiders (11-9, 1-6) led most of the way and were up 74-68 when Iowa State’s Georges Niang tossed in a desperation 3-pointer from the corner with 43 seconds remaining. Gotcher and Williams each hit two free throws to help keep Texas Tech ahead.

Monte Morris scored 20 points and Matt Thomas added 12 for the Cyclones (14-4, 4-2).
