TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Jake Sullivan and Marcus Jefferson each hit two free throws in the final eight seconds Tuesday to give Iowa State a 62-59 victory over Florida State in the second round of the NIT.

Florida State had pulled with two, 58-56, on a pair of free throws by Tim Pickett with 51.1 seconds left.

Jefferson's two free throws put Iowa State ahead by four points with eight seconds left, but Andrew Wilson's 3-pointer made it 60-59 before Sullivan iced the game with his two free throws in the final second.

Florida State (19-14) fell behind early and trailed by as many as 14 points at 35-21 in the second half, but caught up to tie once, at 47-all, on Wilson's first 3-pointer.

Iowa State (19-13) led 33-20 at the half as Florida State shot only 23.2 percent, making only one of its final 17 attempts before halftime.

Sullivan, who finished with a game-high 19 points, put Iowa State ahead 16-12 with 11 early points, including three straight 3-point shots.

His 3-point play, a layup and free throw, broke the 47-all tie and Iowa State never trailed.
