K-State wins double overtime thriller over Xavier

Beware Jacob Pullen and his lucky neck growth.

The neckbearded Kansas State guard hit a couple of key three-pointers in double overtime to kill off Xavier and send the Wildcats to the Elite Eight.

Pullen finished with 28 points (six three-pointers), four rebounds, three assists and a steal. Back-court mate Denis Clemente added 25 points and Curtis Kelley chipped in 21 points, eight boards and five blocks.

The game was filled with Gus-gasms

as easily excitable CBS announcer Gus Johnson erupted with each

game-knotting bucket. Can’t blame Johnson; the game was just that damn

good.
