Louisville 1 win away from home NCAA regional

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Louisville finds itself one win away from returning home for a NCAA tournament regional. The Cardinals will have to beat an Iowa team that can shoot the lights out in its own gym to get there.

Third-seeded Louisville (31-4) played more like a top seed in its 88-42 blowout of Idaho in the first round on Sunday. But Iowa looked nearly as good, shooting 57 percent in an 87-65 win over Marist that was a lot easier than most thought it would be.

The Cardinals and the sixth-seeded Hawkeyes (27-8) meet Tuesday in the second round in Iowa City. The winner will face LSU or West Virginia in Louisville on Sunday.

Cyclones Roll to NCAA Tourney Win

Sports

March 22nd, 2014 by Chris Parks

SAN ANTONIO (AP) – Georges Niang scored 24 points to lead third-seeded Iowa State as the Cyclones pulled away from No. 14 North Carolina Central in the second half for a 93-75 win Friday night in the East Region.

The Big 12 tournament champions found themselves in an early struggle with a program making its first NCAA tournament appearance in just its third year as a full-time Division I program. But the Cyclones’ quickness and balance eventually took over.

Iowa State (27-7) had five players score in double figures. Niang’s two 3-pointers early in the second half keyed Iowa State’s run that put the game away.

Jeremy Ingram scored 28 for North Carolina Central (28-6), which came in on a 20-game win streak and won the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference.
