Son of a....
I had been counting on Illinois to knock off Ohio State, which would have given Iowa the 6 seed in the Big Ten Tournament and an easy opening game with Penn State. A win there would have given them Wisconsin in the second round, who they played very close on the road.
With Ohio State's 65-64 upset today, Iowa will be the 7 seed and face Purdue on Thursday, which is a big step up in competition compared to Penn State. A win there would mean a game against Michigan State on Friday, who beat Iowa (in Iowa City) with a lot more ease than Wisconsin did.
