When you’re filling out your NCAA Tournament bracket, one of the matchups that’s always prime for an upset is the 12 seed versus 5 seed. Going into last night’s Iowa State vs. Nevada game, we’d already seen 5 seed Minnesota lose to 12 seed Middle Tennessee State. ISU would not suffer the same fate.

5 Cyclones scored in double digits led by point guard Monte Morris with a line of 19 points, 8 rebounds and 8 assists. The Cyclones held off Nevada 84-73 at the Bradley Center in Milwaukee. Iowa State led by as many as 15 in the first half and held Nevada to 30% shooting.

With Morris on the bench in the second half, Nevada cut the deficit to only 4, but a 7-0 Cyclone run with 8 minutes left put the game out of reach.

Up next for Iowa State is a date with 4 seed Purdue. That game is Saturday at 8:40 p.m. on TBS. With a win, ISU would be in the Sweet 16 for the second straight year.
