Did Iowa's Adam Woodbury push off on game-winning basket?
Adam Woodbury’s putback as time expired in Friday’s extra session sent seventh-seeded Iowa to a 72-70 victory against Temple in a wild South Region first-round NCAA Tournament game at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.
Woodbury rose to grab the miss by Mike Gesell, and popped it into the hoop from short range to set off a Hawkeyes celebration.
But did he push off? One could argue that he did. Take a look at the video.
But, significantly, there was no call ... so, in the end, it matters not.
Now Iowa (22-10) will advance to play No. 2-seeded Villanova in Brooklyn on Sunday with a shot at the program’s first Sweet 16 since 1999.
