NCAA Tournament: Connecticut Huskies vs. Iowa State Cyclones

Chris Allen led four Cyclones in double figures with 20 points, and Iowa State scored their final 14 at the free throw line Thursday night to beat Connecticut 77-64. It’s the first time since UCLA in 1996 that the defending champs have lost in the opening game and only the second time the Huskies have lost their first game of the NCAA tournament. UConn coach Jim Calhoun was already on his feet before the final buzzer, walking to congratulate Iowa State head coach Fred Hoiberg. The loss is sure to renew questions about the future of Calhoun, who missed a month with back problems and turns 70 in May.
