It was a tale of two halves for the Iowa Hawkeyes.

After being down 13 at one point, Iowa went on a late 18-5 run to storm back and secure a 79-72 first-round win over No. 7 Cincinnati. Led by Luke Garza and Joe Wieskamp, both of whom combined to shoot a remarkable 66-percent from deep, the No. 10 Hawkeyes were able to pull off the upset and give the Big Ten a 6-0 start in ​NCAA Tournament play.

Jordan Bohannon came up big down the stretch with a clutch and-one to give Iowa a 73-64 lead with just over a minute left, before Wieskamp calmly knocked down two free throws and Nicholas Baer dunked the ball home to essentially ice the game.

The Bearcats got a great effort from upperclassmen Jarron Cumberland (18 points) and Justin Jenifer (19 points)  but it wasn't enough to overcome Iowa's 64-percent second-half shooting to bring it home. It was the third 10-7 upset of the tourney after Florida took down Nevada and Minnesota defeated Louisville on 

Iowa will now move on to the ​second round where they'll meet the winner of Tennessee-Colgate.
