Iowa State stuns Creighton 91-88 on last-second 3

BY foxsports • November 21, 2010

Jamie Vanderbeken hit a turnaround 3 as time expired and Iowa State stunned Creighton 91-88, spoiling Greg McDermott's return to Iowa.

Antoine Young hit a pair of free throws with 1.6 seconds left to tie it up. But Vanderbeken caught the ball at the top of the key, spun left and drilled the game-winner - his only 3 of the game - from about 25 feet.

Diante Garrett scored a career-high 28 points, Melvin Ejim added 22 and Jake Anderson scored 19 point and grabbed 15 boards for the Cyclones (4-0).

Young led five players in double figures with 21 points for the Bluejays (3-1), who went 14 of 27 from 3-point range.

But it was a 3 they couldn't stop that sent them to their first loss under McDermott.

McDermott coached Iowa State for four seasons before leaving for Creighton last spring.
