Hawk Talk

Spartans knock out Hawkeyes, 59-56

Michigan State put together a second-half rally, knocking Iowa out of the Big Ten Tournament and into the NIT.
One of the problems I have about the NCAA tournament is when you have a team with a losing record in the field.
That means a team, like the Liberty Flames (15-20), who won their conference tournament, knocked out a team like Iowa (21-12), who finished sixth in the toughest conference in America.
I don’t see why the committee can’t say you at least have to have a winning record like the NIT does.
