Happy Palm Sunday: How are your March Madness brackets doing for you?

It's March and what a March indeed!!!

The Iowa Hawkeyes came up short in Fran McCaffery's third season at the helm.  But, the quest for a NIT run is brewing, as the Hawkeyes will find out today where their quarterfinal game will be played.  Could one more game be played in Iowa City with a bid for the Big Apple at stake?
  • The Hawkeyes won the first round with a win over Indiana State in Iowa City
  • The Hawkeyes won the second round with a win over Stony Brook in Iowa City
  • A St. John's win on Palm Sunday at Virginia will seal a Wednesday night quarterfinal game in Iowa City.  A Virginia win will send the Hawkeyes packing for the East Coast a game early!

Enough of the NIT talk.  Let's talk about the real March Madness with the NCAA Tournament!

  • Creighton and Wichita State men and women are in the Big Dance
  • Iowa State men and women are in the Big Dance
  • The Iowa Hawkeyes women are in the Big Dance
  • How are your brackets doing through halfway point of the Third Round?
