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.
Adam Waleskowski led Florida State with 14 points and 10 rebounds and Alexander Johnson added 12 points. Pickett scored seven points and made only 1 of 13 tries from 3-point range.
