(2) Iowa State 80,|
(6) UCLA 56
Iowa State PG Jamaal Tinsley |
14 pts., 9 ast., 8 reb.
Did everything right, including making quick work of counterpart Earl Watson.
It was no surprise to see Marcus Fizer dominate UCLA's big men, but more strikingly was how ISU's Tinsley and Michael Nurse drained outside shots seemingly at will.
Iowa State: Saturday vs. (1) Michigan State|
UCLA: Prep for a whole season with JaRon Rush.
(1) Michigan |
(4) Syracuse 58
Michigan St. SF Morris Peterson |
21 pts, 5-9 3-pointers
Took over in the second half, pacing the Spartans' 25-point turnaround.
A classic tale of two halves, as Michigan State couldn't hit anything in the first half and fell behind by 14, then turned it on in the second, scoring 17 unanswered points to win going away.
