Iowa completes improbable comeback against Michigan State, Hawkeyes head coach gets into stare-down with ref

Feb 25, 2023

It isn't every day that college basketball fans see a final score of 112-106.

It’s even less likely fans will see a team rally from 13-points down with under two minutes to play.

Fans of Iowa and Michigan State were treated to both occurrences Saturday afternoon in Iowa City as the Hawkeyes staged a furious comeback in the final two minutes to defeat the Spartans.

Down 91-78 with 1:34 left in the second half, Iowa outscored Michigan State 23-10 in the final two minutes, including a clutch game-tying three-point shot from Payton Sandfort to send the game into overtime.

The Hawkeyes outscored the Spartans 11-5 in overtime for the 112-106 win.

Iowa connected on six of nine three-pointers, including four in a row, in the final 1:30 of the second half to force OT.
