In East Region action on Friday, the Big 12 champion and third-seeded Iowa State Cyclones will be in action taking on 14th-seeded North Carolina Central as the 2014 NCAA Tournament rolls along.
After an up-and-down season, DeAndre Kane and the Cyclones turned it on during the Big 12 Tournament and steamrolled their way to the conference title, and many have them pegged as a Final Four favorite with the way they’ve been playing down the stretch recently. Head coach Fred Hoiberg has turned this program around in an amazing way, and a deep tourney run would only solidify that even further.
North Carolina Central comes in as the champions of the MEAC, and a 28-5 overall record. As long as they can get on some streaks shooting wise, they might have a chance at keeping up with Iowa State in this one.
Here’s how you can watch all the action unfold on Friday:
Date: Mar. 21
Start Time: 9:50 PM ET
Location: San Antonio, TX
Arena: AT&T Center
