Under terms of the compromise, the conference will divide the first unit of tournament revenue evenly among the 10 teams, but give the teams a larger slice of any additional units they generate by winning games.

The Hawkeyes instead kept scratching and clawing their way to daylight, almost pulling off a record-setting comeback.

"They got a number of guys that can score", said Altman.

No one watching the CBS telecast of this game would have suggested Iowa would even make it close in the second half. Ty Jerome also played efficiently for the entire 40 minutes of the contest. While a couple games went down to the wire, notably the Duke-UCF game, we've lacked the usual drama... so far.

Tennessee is 22-22 all-time.

The overtime lacked a storybook element, however.

Williamson was asked about what he was thinking on the game winning drive to the basket against Falls who is nearly one foot taller than him. When he looks at you and tells you that you're made for this moment, it's like the most confidence you can ever be given.

"To come up short like that, man, that stings".

He scored 5 points on just 1-of-9 shooting in the Hawkeyes' upset win over Cincinnati in the first round. It became 34-14 and 44-19. Carter is coming off a 30-point, nine- rebound and five-assist game against No. 5 seed Marquette. Sometimes you are trying to play to preserve the lead, but we had to play to win. Iowa looked sluggish and unable to keep up with the athletic Volunteers.


Without Cook in the second half, it's unlikely Iowa would have been as aggressive as it was.

Purdue is playing with increased confidence and as I stated before the Tournament began, I strongly believed they were a great wager to win the South Region.

"[The Vols] were in a very comfortable place offensively in the first half", Iowa Coach Fran McCaffery said.

But the Cavaliers and Hokies have survived the tournament's first weekend together for the first time.

Williamson is the only player nationally averaging 20.0+ points and shooting.650+ from the field. The Bears defeated No. 6 seeded DePaul in the first round and kept rolling with a 69-60 win over Iowa State University in the round of 32. When it was 61-53, senior Nicholas Baer tracked down an offensive rebound and fed Bohannon for 3-pointer with 8:12 left. "But I'm just happy that I was able to do it". "His performance in the second half was awesome". That was the last of four triples Reddish made during a memorable comeback from a 23-point deficit in less than 10 minutes at Louisville, and he also drew a foul and sank a pair of go-ahead free throws on the Blue Devils' last possession of the game. But Tennessee was back up 71-67 with 57 seconds to go.

Instead, the Power Five conferences and numerous mid-majors divide money evenly, regardless of how their teams perform.

In a very unusual twist, Tennessee secured the victory in overtime without Schofield coming off the bench. "So when you do get there, you hope to take advantage of it". Auburn: This should be a high scoring game as both teams are hot, can put up points, and are less concerned with defense. Moss added 16 points, five rebounds and two steals, and Luka Garza chipped in 13 points, four rebounds and two blocks. This team took some time to find their identity after losing Bol Bol for the season, but they managed to push through and take charge of the rest of the season.

"I think Duke's going to pull away with it", said Florida signee Scottie Lewis.
