Iowa State's Naz Mitrou-Long was near tears as he spoke of the brotherhood he shared with his teammates. The heartbreak of March.

Purdue avoided what would have been an epic collapse, hanging on to beat Iowa State 80-76 and advance to the Sweet 16. The Boilermakers led by 19 points during the second half before a furious rally helped give the Cyclones a two-point lead. Purdue guard P.J. Thompson' 3-pointer put the Boilermakers back in front for good. What a game. March Madness at its finest.

Iowa State came all the way back from 19 down against Purdue, but two types of mistakes killed the Cyclones. Turnovers on back-to-back possessions in the 39th minute were most uncharacteristic coming from the Cyclones. The other mistake was more typical: ISU was weak on the defensive glass all season, and Caleb Swanigan's offensive rebound of Dakota Mathias' missed free throw with 11 seconds left sealed the win for the Boilermakers.

Buckle up for what could be a wild finish between Purdue and Iowa State in Milwaukee. The Boilermakers seemingly has this game in hand with a 19-point lead. But the Cyclones have come surging back, and the pro-Iowa State crowd is creating an electric atmosphere.

Jesse Temple ESPN Staff Writer 

Purdue is absolutely dominating Iowa State with what has to be one of the Boilermakers' best games of the season given the circumstances. Purdue's execution on offense has been tremendous. The Boilermakers scored on backdoor layups from the exact same play on two consecutive possessions. That pretty much sums this one up so far.

Jesse Temple ESPN Staff Writer 

Purdue's Dakota Mathias buried two 3-pointers in the final minute to give his team a 44-31 halftime lead against Iowa State. That was a truly exceptional half from the Boilermakers, who shot 56.7 percent from the field. Iowa State shot a solid 44.8 percent from the field, but it hardly mattered.

Purdue center Isaac Haas struggled with foul trouble in the first round, but he has been excellent tonight against Iowa State. Haas scored seven points in six minutes before coming out for rest. Few teams can guard the 7-foot-2 Haas straight up.

We're ready to roll for what should be a highly entertaining matchup between Purdue and Iowa State. The Boilermakers' size is a major advantage. But the Cyclones' backcourt is tough to stop.

Expect close one in Purdue vs. Iowa State

There are two things that you can count on with the Boilermakers: they make a high percentage of their 3s, and Caleb Swanigan will likely have a double-double. Can Iowa State prevent one of those from happening?

Iowa State coach Steve Prohm says his team's backcourt is the reason the Cyclones have been so good down the stretch. It will again be the key against Purdue. "If we can get stops and push tempo and make them have to pick up their pace, then we're going to be at the advantage," Prohm says.

Purdue coach Matt Painter breaks down what makes Iowa State so tough, particularly the play of Cyclones guard Monte Morris. The two teams play tomorrow for a Sweet 16 berth.

ESPN Stats and Information  

ESPN's BPI gives Purdue north of a 60 percent chance to beat Iowa State Saturday, though the Boilermakers could have a tough time slowing down Iowa State's Monte Morris, who scored or assisted on 38 of the Cyclones' 84 points in their win over Nevada Thursday.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Monte Morris became the only player in Iowa State history to record 19 points, eight rebounds and eight assists in an NCAA tournament game. The 5th-seeded Cyclones beat 12th-seeded Nevada 84-73 on Thursday and will meet 4th-seeded Purdue on Saturday.

John Gasaway ESPN Insider 

Nevada could not defend the rim against Iowa State. The Cyclones shot a blistering 63 percent on their 2s, with Deonte Burton (14 points) leading that charge. Throw in 19 from Monte Morris (7-of-7 at the line), and you have an ISU win. Now: Morris turned the ball over *four* times? Is this possible? Look for the senior to return to his zero-turnover ways against Purdue.

Iowa State's Burton calls matchup with Purdue 'David and Goliath' (1:02)

Jesse Temple ESPN Staff Writer 

Iowa State's Deonte Burton called his team's matchup against Purdue a "David and Goliath" game because of the Boilermakers' size. On paper, it could provide one of the most entertaining second round games.

Jesse Temple ESPN Staff Writer 

Iowa State escapes with an 84-73 victory against Nevada in a game that was closer than expected during the second half. ISU led by 13 points at halftime but had to fend off several comeback attempts. No. 5 seed Iowa State advances to play No. 4 seed Purdue in what should be a great second round matchup. ISU's guards are as good as any team has in this tournament. Purdue counters with size in the post. Saturday will be fun.

Jesse Temple ESPN Staff Writer 

Things are getting chippy in Milwaukee between Iowa State and Nevada. We had a double technical call, and players on both sides are jawing at each other seemingly every time down the floor. ISU still leads, but Nevada has been hanging around. It could make for a great finish.
