Gabby Gregory scored 24 points and hit a free throw with 4 seconds remaining as Kansas State defeated No. 4 Iowa 84-83 Thursday night.

Preseason All-American Caitlin Clark was shaken in the last game for Iowa and had to be helped off the field. Clark finished 6-of-27 shooting with 27 points.

The Hawkeyes (3-1) brought the ball up to Monika Czinano near the basket on their last possession and Kansas State was called for a foul, but after a review it was determined the time before the foul was up and the Wildcats ( 3-0 ) held.

Serena Sundell also scored 24 points for Kansas State, which recovered from a seven-point deficit in the fourth quarter. Sarah Shematsi had 18 points. The Wildcats had never beaten an opponent ranked as high as No. 4, which was Iowa’s best finish in nearly 30 years.
