Kansas escaped from Ames, Iowa, Monday night with a 108-96 overtime victory against Iowa State, but the win was not without controversy. Come Tuesday, the Big 12 admitted that mistakes were made by the officiating crew at the end of regulation, though the conference would not point to a specific play or sequence.
But it is pretty clear where the error likely came, highlighting Kansas’ last possession of regulation. Watch below:
As guard Elijah Johnson brought the ball over half court and drove toward the basket with around 0:11 to play, Iowa State freshman Georges Niang appeared to have slid under the basket and taken a charge from Johnson. There was no call, but Niang was called for a
block hold and Johnson went to the line, sinking two free throws and sending the game into an extra period.
Kansas then pulled away for the win.
