the one thing that bothered me was after the game and the "expert" there at the BigTen desk said Iowa is still way too low in RPI to get in the NCAA
I would rather see Iowa go to the NIT...and win the NIT this year. That probably does the program more than drawing a play-in game and losing to a 'wildcat' team
This team's demise was giving away far too many games this season.
Iowa will be lucky to get into the big dance.
I've always held the stance that I'd rather lose in the first round of the NCAAs than to win the NIT, no matter the circumstances.
