The Iowa State Cyclones men’s basketball is the team which represents Iowa State University and competes in the Big 12 Conference of NCAA Division I.
The South region is out of whack while UAB, a 14 seed out of Conference USA that was the No. 4 seed in its own league tournament, managed to upend No. 3 Iowa State, 60-59, and burn some brackets right off the bat
For the first time this year Iowa State, one of the most impressive offensive teams all season, failed to score 60 points, when UAB’s Robert Brown (21 points) hit a 3-pointer with 50.6 seconds to go to put UAB up 57-56, that was the big moment came in the game.
Without Brown, UAB doesn’t win because he hit them all and UAB made just three 3-pointer shots all day.
William Lee sank a jumper to give the Blazers a lead they’d never relinquish when Iowa State’s Monte Morris hit a runner to give ISU the lead back, 57-56, with 41 seconds to go. this final minute had plenty of drama and some lead changes, Lee (14 points) then blocked Georges Niang’s shot, was fouled, and hit two free throws to get UAB a 60-57 lead.
A 14 has won the game and this marks the third straight NCAA Tournament. UAB now has a four-game winning streak, its longest since December of 2013 and the first time this has happened since 1995-97.
