Merry Madness! Sixteen down and 16 to go. There’s been plenty of upsets so far in the round of 64 of March Madness 2015, and there’s sure to be more on Day 2 – aka Friday, March 20 – of the NCAA Tournament. One the games taking place on Day 2 in the East bracket is No. 5 UNI vs. No. 12 Wyoming.
The University of Northern Iowa might have lost the Missouri Valley regular-season title to Wyoming, but the Panthers one-upped the regular season bragging rights for something more – the MVC Tournament Championship and an automatic bid to the Big Dance. This will be UNI’s first trip to March Madness since 2010 and enters play with a 30-3 (16-2) record.
The Panthers square off with Wyoming in the round of 64.
While Wyoming showed talent this season, the Cowboys weren’t pegged as a team who would be dancing this year. As the No. 4 seed in the Mountain West Conference Tournament, Wyoming bypassed No. 5 Utah State, No. 1 Boise State and No. 2 San Diego State to claim the conference championship and an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. The Cowboys will be heading to the dance 25-9 overall, 11-7 in the MW and are ranked ninth in the nation for points allowed to an opponent with an average of 56.0 points.
