• This is a first-round game in the NIT. Iowa is the No. 1 seed in its quadrant, South Dakota the No. 8 seed. The winner plays the winner of a game between No. 4 TCU and No. 5 Fresno State (Wednesday, 7 p.m.) at a yet-to-be-determined date and time at the home of the higher-seeded team.
• Iowa finished the regular season with a four-game winning streak, then lost to Indiana 95-73 in the Big Ten tournament despite 24 points and 10 assists by freshman Jordan Bohannon. The Hawkeyes are in the NIT for the eighth time. They advanced to the championship game of the tournament in 2013.
• South Dakota won its last seven regular-season games to claim the Summit League title, then lost to South Dakota State in the conference tournament. The Coyotes, who have only one senior on the roster and three Division I transfers in the starting lineup, are making only their second postseason appearance as a D-I program. They played in the 2010 CollegeInsider.com tournament.
