Iowa State stops Boise State, 70-66

HONOLULU (AP) - DeAndre Kane scored 23 points and No. 14 Iowa State overcame its worst half of the season to beat Boise State 70-66 on Wednesday night in the Diamond Head Classic championship game.

Kane hit a 3-pointer with less than 2 minutes left to help seal the win for the Cyclones (11-0). Boise State's Derrick Marks had a chance to tie with less than 30 seconds left, but missed a 15-foot jumper.

Melvin Ejim had 15 points and 10 rebounds.

The win gives Iowa State its best start to a season in school history. It started with 10 straight wins in the 1996-1997 season en route to a final 16 appearance in the NCAA tournament.

Derrick Marks had 23 points for Boise State (10-3).

Iowa State came back after making less than a third of its shots in the first half, improving to 50 percent in the second half, including 6 of 13 3-pointers (46.2 percent).

Kane earned tournament MVP honors for his three-game performance, with his biggest moments coming Wednesday.

Kane put Iowa State within a point about 6 minutes into the second half. Kane took two dribbles with his right hand near the top of the key, then hit a jumper and was fouled. He missed a free throw to tie, but Ejim pulled down the rebound and hit a layup to give the Cyclones their first lead of the game.

Marks later tied it at 60 with a jumper and a 3-pointer on consecutive possessions, but Iowa State responded with two free throws and a straightaway 3-pointer by Kane with less than 2 minutes left.

Kane, Ejim and Georges Niang were selected to the tournament's all-tournament team, winning trophies etched in paddles for canoes or paddle surfing. Anthony Drmic made the all-tournament team for Boise State.
