The champ is dead! Long live the new champ! Iowa State knocked off defending champions UConn, and in convincing fashion. In what may have been Jim Calhoun’s last game, his team lost in a very un-Calhoun manner - getting destroyed on the boards and never recovering from an early deficit.
Basketball fans will miss Calhoun, I’ll miss watching Jeremy Lamb, and Lord of the Rings fans will miss Alex Oriakhi (pictured above), because his last name sounds like a race of orcs.
