Iowa State received a number 8 seed during Sunday's NCAA tournament selection.  As a reward, they'll face the defending national champion UConn Huskies.  UConn picked up the 9th seed in the Atlanta region.

Iowa State finished the season with a 22-10 record, while going 12-6 in Big 12 play.  The Huskies (20-13) struggled in the year following their title finishing just below .500 in Big East play.

The winner of the ISU-UConn game can look forward to a date with Kentucky, the #1 overall seed, in the second round.

Iowa State and Connecticut tip off at 8:20 PM, Thursday night, in Louisville, Kentucky.
