SEATTLE (AP) - It started with an inquisitive tweet from the main University of Iowa Twitter account, right after it was announced the Hawkeyes would be playing Davidson in their NCAA Tournament opener.

".@DavidsonCollege just to confirm...Steph Curry is out of eligibility, right?"

No, the former Davidson sharpshooter will not be on the floor Friday when No. 7 seed Iowa faces the No. 10 Wildcats.

What Iowa does have to worry about is Atlantic 10 player of the year Tyler Kalinoski, and a Davidson offense that has avoided the scoring dip seen around college basketball.

The Wildcats (24-7) rank sixth in the country with nearly 80 points per game.

That will be the challenge for the Hawkeyes (21-11), who are trying to rebound from a disappointing loss to Penn State in the Big Ten quarterfinals.
