    Virginia vs. Iowa State picks for the NCAA Tournament’s Sweet 16 matchup

    Virginia got a heck of a challenge from the Butler Bulldogs in the Round of 32, but the Hoos prevailed behind huge performances from the likes of Malcolm Brogdon and Anthony Gill. Those two have been all stars for Virginia all year, and that will continue to be the case throughout the remainder of their time in the tournament. Virginia’s presence further solidifies the ACC’s case for the best conference in college hoops.

    A lot of people were picking Iona to upset the Cyclones in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. This Iowa State squad just chuckled, rolled its eyes, and went on to dominate the Gaels and spoil Arkansas-Little Rock’s upset bid. This shouldn’t be news to anyone, but these Clones are for real. If they can continue this dominant play against a defense as superb as Virginia’s, a Final Four trip will be within reaching distance.

    Here are the Campus Insiders Virginia vs. Iowa State picks.

    Iowa State has looked phenomenal so far, but they’ve had an easy path to the Sweet 16. They won’t be able to handle Virginia’s defense.

    Virginia. The Hoos double the Cyclones production off the bench. Depth it is.
