Officials Goof Near End of Jayhawks-Cyclone 2/27/13
DALLAS - The Big 12 believes the Kansas Jayhawks received a little unintentional help from the officials Monday night.
The conference says officiating errors were made at the end of regulation as the sixth-ranked Jayhawks outlasted Iowa State in overtime. The league said Tuesday that "appropriate measures will be taken" against the two officials involved, including an adjustment of "the number of future assignments."
The Big 12 did not identify the officials or the plays in question.
The Jayhawks' Elijah Johnson drove into the lane and got tangled up with Iowa State's Georges Niang with less than 10 seconds left. No foul was called, and Niang was then whistled for fouling Johnson on the floor. Johnson sank two free throws with 4.9 seconds left to force OT.
