AMES, Iowa, Jan. 13 (UPI) -- Two dunks from Brandon Rush in overtime Saturday helped sixth-ranked Kansas fight off Iowa State, 68-64.

Rush hit a key three-pointer late in regulation to force the extra period and then became a hero in overtime as the Jayhawks improved to 15-2 for the year and to 2-0 in the Big 12 Conference.

With Kansas trailing by two and less than two minutes remaining in overtime, Rush tied it with a dunk. He then stole the ball and raced down the court for another slam with 47 seconds remaining.

Two free throws by Mario Chalmers gave the Jayhawks a four-point lead.

Sasha Kaun had 13 points for Kansas and Rush had 12. Iowa State (11-6, 2-1) was led by Mike Taylor with 21 points. The Cyclones had a four-game winning streak snapped.
