Here are the results from last week’s games, in the NCAA Tournament (bracket) and the National Invitation Tournament (NIT) (bracket):
NIT Semifinals: (#3) Iowa beat (#2) Maryland, 71-60
NIT Championship: (#3) Iowa lost to (#2) Baylor, 74-54
NCAA: (South Region #4) Michigan beat (East Region #4) Syracuse. 61-56
