CHICAGO — Kameron McGusty scored 27 points and Miami advanced to the Elite Eight for the first time, using its swarming defense to beat Iowa State 70-56 in the NCAA tournament.

Jordan Miller added 16 points on 6-for-6 shooting as No. 10 seed Miami more than held its own in a matchup of two of the tournament's most suffocating defenses.

The 11th-seeded Cyclones shot 32% from the field in the second half and finished with 18 turnovers.
