Iowa State Cyclones
William Lee scored the last four points for 14th-seeded UAB, and the Blazers upset ninth-ranked Iowa State 60-59 on Thursday in their opening game in the NCAA Tournament.
UConn may have a rough go to kick off their title defense. The Iowa Cyclones are not exactly slouches, having knocked off Big 12 behemoths Kansas, Baylor and Kansas State this year.
Rutgers will play Iowa State in the Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium on Dec. 30.
