(2) Crimson tide hit rough waves against (15) Iona
Another recipe for upset. Iona with superstar head coach Rick Pitino against a school that is known for it’s football resume. However Alabama earned a 2 seed in this year’s tourney with their excellent play. However Bama looked like they were in a for a major upset as they struggled to keep up with the pace of Iona. It was clear that they were more prepared for this matchup. However late into the game Alabama got into their rhythm and put away Iona.
