Under 30 seconds to play, West Virginia called timeout against Iowa State to run up an out-of-bounds play to get to the free-throw line. Taz Sherman ends up throwing a pass intended for Jalen Bridges, to which ISU’s Izaiah Brockington intercepts the pass and scores to take the lead.

The Cyclones went on to win 84-81 in Ames.

Following the game, West Virginia head coach Bob Huggins was asked what was supposed to happen on that play.

“I drew it up for them twice, twice. Very simple thing, which would’ve unquestionably worked,” Huggins said. “They had five guys inside the foul line.”

Huggins goes onto explain how the play was drawn. There was supposed to be a back screen which results in a wide-open Mountaineer at the other end of the court for a long pass.
