Jamie Vanderbeken hit a turnaround 3 as time expired and Iowa State stunned Creighton 91-88, spoiling Greg McDermott's return to Iowa.

Antoine Young hit a pair of free throws with 1.6 seconds left to tie it up. But Vanderbeken caught the ball at the top of the key, spun left and drilled the game-winner -- his only 3 of the game -- from about 25 feet.

Diante Garrett scored a career-high 28 points, Melvin Ejim added 22 and Jake Anderson scored 19 point and grabbed 15 boards for the
Cyclones (4-0).

Young led five players in double figures with 21 points for the Bluejays (3-1), who went 14 of 27 from 3-point range.

But it was a 3 they couldn't stop that sent them to their first loss under McDermott.

McDermott coached Iowa State for four seasons before leaving for
Creighton last spring.
