Iowa State breaks final group stage in crazy March 2022

2022 is yet another year that won’t have a perfect bracket in March Madness, thanks to the State of Iowa knocking out LSU.

Until next year. 2022 is yet another year where March Madness doesn’t have a perfect frame, and you can thank Iowa State for beating LSU for that.

The Cyclones’ 59-54 win over the Tigers ensures that whoever fills in a frame won’t be perfect. While Kentucky’s shock loss to Saint Peter’s on Thursday was a real disappointment, this one officially ends any speculation about a perfect bracket by any individual, at least for this year. .

Initially, it was just two points pending Illinois and Chattanooga’s results, and once Fighting Illini won, it all turned to this game to see if there was still a perfect group by the end of round one. . Long story short, it didn’t happen.

Iowa State Beating LSU Ensures That 2022 Is Not The Year When March Madness Has A Perfect Frame

Iowa State is essentially a two-man crew against LSU, with Tyrese Hunter scoring 23 and Izaiah Brockington scoring 19 to take the lead. No other Cyclones player has scored more than 10 points, as Caleb Grill has eight as the third-highest scorer.

In contrast, no LSU player has scored more than 20. Tari Eason scored 18 while Darius Days scored 14. Mwani Wilkinson and Brandon Murray each have 8. In short, this is a defensive battle with higher points.

Iowa State led 24-19 in the first half, and both teams scored the same number of points to keep the deficit at five. At the end of the game, the square brackets were broken, one team went on and the other team went home.

Above all, March Madness 2022 has no more perfect brackets. Two years in a row no perfect brackets survived the first round. Not perfect at its best.
