Craft 3-pointer sends Bucks to Sweet 16

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Aaron Craft’s last-second three-pointer gave the second-seeded Buckeyes a 78-75 win over Iowa State in the third round of the NCAA West Regional at University of Dayton Arena Sunday and sends Ohio State on to the Sweet 16.

After tying the game at 75 with a free throw with 1:15 remaining, Craft took the ball following a timeout with :29 left and played for the last shot, letting go over Georges Niang from the right point and hitting the game-winner with :.05 on the clock.

The Buckeyes (28-7) will play Arizona Thursday night (7:47 p.m./TBS) in Los Angeles as the only team in the current field to reach the Sweet 16 for four consecutive years.

OSU saw a 13-point lead evaporate late in the second half when the Cyclones went on a 13-0 run in a 1:57 span and regained the advantage only briefly one more time before Craft’s shot.

Deshaun Thomas led the Buckeyes with 24 points with Craft adding 18 and LaQuinton Ross 17.

Ohio State struggled from the free throw line in the second half, especially Craft, but made it up with 6-7 shooting from beyond the three-point arc.

Iowa State (23-12) was led by Korie Lucious with 19 points.
