Controversial no-call punctuates final minute of Iowa's upset loss to Richmond
Iowa is out of the NCAA Tournament, getting bounced in the Round of 64 after a dramatic performance last weekend during the B1G Tournament.
Entering as a 5-seed, the Hawkeyes were stunned by 12-seed Richmond. The Spiders produced the upset by shutting down Iowa’s offense and holding the Hawkeyes to a 36.4% shooting performance and 63 points. It was the third-lowest output of the season for Iowa.

During the loss, Iowa had a chance late to tie the game while trailing by 3 points. Kris Murray fired off a 3-point shot that landed well short of the goal as an airball.
The reason Murray’s short was so short was a defender clearly hitting Murray’s left hand during the shot just above his elbow. Making matters even more frustrating, 2 officials were locked into the play and appeared to be staring at the foul that went uncalled.
