Karl Chevrolet gives you peace of mind when you purchase a GM Certified Pre-owned vehicle. We have been the #1 GM Certified dealer in the nation for 10 consecutive years. Before you make your next purchase, come see why more people nationwide drive a Karl Chevrolet Pre-owned vehicle than any other dealer-There is a difference, Come see why TODAY!!

Bring it on, Gaels. 

Iowa State, a four-seed, will play the MAAC champs, Iona (a 13-seed) on Thursday in Denver. 

A few notes on where Iona is ranked across many of college basketball’s different platforms:

KenPom: 71
RPI: 86
AP/USA Today Top 25: Unranked

At first glance, this is a great draw for the Cyclones. On the other side, there’s Purdue as a five-seed taking on 12th seeded Arkansas Little-Rock.
