So ISU gets Miami in the first round hosted in Madison on Thursday. If we win, we likely face Wisconsin on their home court.

This is in the Lexington region. So we did not get in the Des Moines region. Minnesota is the top seed (#2) in the DSM region.

Was the thinking that we might get into the DSM region? Don't know if we're better off with the matches where we are, but given our strong attendance, seems like it might have been considered.

p.s. UNI made the tourney in the DSM region.

So would we be the 7 seed or the 10 seed if we were looking at this like the NCAA bball tourney? I assume Wisconsin projects to a #2 seed - #6 overall.

Yes. We might even beat Miami and get to play Bucky's team.

I gotta figure out how to get out early on Thursday. I haven't made it to a UW game this year so maybe I could accomplish that on Friday then.....

Right, the Austin regional. I'm pretty sure ESPNU showed us in the Lexington region on TV. But the bracket shows Austin.
Not a real good draw except for the proximity to Ames, IMO. You know when you're unseeded that you're going to get sent to a site where the host school is a top 16 seed (except for Creighton), and you hope that you face a 13-14-15 or 16. Unfortunately, at best, we're going to face Wisky in the second round, a school that's among the group who could win it all...
Speaking of Creighton, how the hell did they get seeded?

Their RPI is 21. ISU is 23. Seems very odd to get a top seed.
