You won’t believe how far Iowa State basketball made it in the NCAA Tournament!

OMAHA – Every now and then, from somewhere high on the floor of the CHI Health Center, a single piece of confetti would move freely and float toward the court.

It was almost as if the building itself couldn't handle the anxiety, stress and pressure of the NCAA Tournament.

Iowa State, however, had no problems in the crucible.

The second-seeded Cyclones shrugged off a miserable offensive start with poise and their menacing defense to defeat No. 7 Washington State, 67-56, to advance to the Sweet 16 for the second time in three seasons.

Iowa State (29-7) will head to Boston for the East Region semifinals to face either No. 3 Illinois or No. 11 Duquesne at TD Garden on Thursday.
