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.

Hawkeye men and women have 20 wins

The Hawkeye men needed to win their last two home games and maybe two games in the Big Ten Tournament to have a shot at the NCAA tournament.
The got one in a good win over Illinois, 63-55, last week at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.
It was another one of those grind-it-out games, but Devyn Marble and Iowa’s bench were too tough for the Fighting Illini.
Devyn was 10-10 from the free throw line, scoring 21 points with six rebounds and four assists.
Devyn has really stepped up his game since Mike Gesell went down with a foot injury, and has carried the team to a 2-1 record without Mike.
