Kansas State might be a longshot to make the NCAA Tournament, but the Wildcats are still going to be a team no one wants to play in March.

Bruce Weber’s Kansas State squad knocked off No. 12 Iowa State, 70-69, in Manhattan on Saturday thanks to a furious second-half comeback by the Wildcats and a last-minute mistake by the visiting Cyclones.

Trailing by one point without the ball with 18 seconds left, Kansas State’s Wesley Iwundu stole a risky in-bounds pass from Iowa State and threw down what would be the game-winning basket. Iowa State’s buzzer-beater attempt on the ensuing possession fell short.
