Upset Kings: Kansas State Knocks Off Second-Straight Top 15 Team

G Fiume/Getty Images(MANHATTAN, Kan.) -- Down by one with less than 20 seconds remaining, Kansas State forward Wesley Iwundu stole Iowa State's inbounds pass, took it to the rim and slammed it home to give the Wildcats a 70-69 victory over the No. 12 Cyclones on Saturday.

The win is Kansas State's second straight against a top 15 team. The Wildcats beat No. 8 Kansas on Monday.

Iwundu's game-winning slam was the finishing touch to 22-9 Kansas State scoring run to end the game.

Iowa State (20-8, 10-6 Big 12) led by seven at halftime but was held to 38 percent shooting from the field in the second half leading to its second straight loss.

"They pressure the heck out of you in this building, there is no doubt about that," Iowa State head coach Fred Hoiberg said. "They've won eight league games, they had a really good game and we expected them to come out and pressure us. They played us very tough."

Kansas State (15-15, 8-9 Big 12) received a team-high 17 points from Nigel Johnson in the win.

Kevin Harvick Wins XFINITY Race at Atlanta Motor Speedway

Todd Warshaw/Getty Images(HAMPTON, Ga.) -- Kevin Harvick took the lead with 26 laps to go on Saturday and took home the checkered flag in the XFINITY Series race at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Harvick held off Joey Logano to win at Atlanta for the third straight time.

"The first thing I want to do is thank all those fans today," Harvick said. "To see that crowd out there, I'm really happy for Atlanta Motor Speedway."

"That pit stop is what won this race," Harvick continued.  "Joey probably had a little bit better car the second half of the run, but it really played out there for us as we were able to have that short run and take off."

Logano won the pole for Sunday's Sprint Cup race and was happy to have a great run.

"This is the closest anyone's been to beating Kevin here in a long time," Logano said. "We got beat off pit road. We had a decent restart, but the outside lane is so tough. At that point, I was trying to move around to different lanes. Trying to find something for some speed."
