Stop by and chat about this matchup between Nevada and Iowa State as this post is also being used as an open thread.
The Nevada Wolf Pack will have to wait all day before they tip off their first NCAA Tournament game in over a decade when the play Iowa State late in the evening, well for those out East.
Iowa State is a very good team as they won the Big 12 tournament title and are ranked in the top 20. The big advantage everyone is talking about is how well Nevada rebounds and the opposite is said about Iowa State. However, the Cyclones can counter that with how well they shoot the three-ball and they are just as athletic as the Wolf Pack.
From our game preview, here is what Nevada must do to get the win:
For Nevada to pull off the upset, they must contain point guard Monte Morris and Deonte Burton. Morris is averaging 16 points, six assists, and five rebounds a game for the Cyclones while shooting 47 percent from the field and 39 percent from the three-point line. Burton is a high energy, but undersized, athletic big man who has averaged 15 points and six rebounds per game this season.
