Daily Bread for 3.20.22: Wisconsin vs. Iowa State

Good morning.

Sunday in Whitewater will be sunny with a high of 59.  Sunrise is 6:56 AM and sunset 7:07 PM for 12h 11m 41s of daytime.  The moon is a waning gibbous with 94% of its visible disk illuminated.

On this day in 1942, General Douglas MacArthur, at Terowie, South Australia, makes his famous speech regarding the fall of the Philippines, in which he says: “I came out of Bataan and I shall return.”

The NCAA Division I tournaments — men’s and women’s — are one of the simple pleasures of Spring. Wisconsin has solid programs at the Division I and Division III levels, but Division I March Madness is among Amertica’s most notable athletic events (and that says a lot, as we are an athletically competitive people). Today, it’s Wisconsin vs. Iowa State. Jeff Potrykus reports Wisconsin vs. Iowa State matchups and what to watch in the Badgers basketball team’s second-round NCAA Tournament game

Will Iowa State attack the rim or bomb away? Iowa State finished with 56 field-goal attempts against LSU. Of that total, 37 were three-pointers. That is a whopping 66% of the team’s shots. The Cyclones entered the game with 669 three-point attempts out of 1,787 overall field-goal attempts, or just 37.4% of their shots. It will be interesting to see if the Iowa State coaches believe they can attack UW off the dribble or will need another three-point barrage to advance.
