Iowa State shot 43.9 percent from the floor with 45 percent (9-of-20) from 3-point range in the win over North Carolina. The Cyclones were out-rebounded 36-29 (12-10) offensive but had 17 assists to the Tar Heels’ 12. As for UConn, they put up another quality outing versus Alabama on Friday with 43.3 percent shooting and 21-of-24 (87.5 percent) from the line. This matchup should be one of the best all weekend, and I think Iowa State can keep it up to power out a cover.
