Purdue should be a -16 point favorite versus Yale in the first round of the 2022 NCAA Tournament.

Keegan Murray capped a remarkable week with 19 points, 11 rebounds and three assists to lead No. 24 Iowa past No. 9 Purdue 75-66 on Sunday, giving the fifth-seeded Hawkeyes their first conference crown since 2006 and the league's automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament.

“We knew this team was destined for greatness,” said Murray, the tournament’s Most Outstanding Player. “We changed the direction of the Iowa program today.”

Purdue is still ranked No. 9 in the country.

Yale, meanwhile, advanced to the Big Dance and will represent the Ivy League after beating Princeton on Sunday.

The Bulldogs will compete in the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2019, which is the last time an Ivy League team appeared in the bracket after the conference took a yearlong hiatus from competitive athletics during the pandemic in 2020–21.

Yale guard Azar Swain ’22 scored a game-high 23 points as the Bulldog defense held Princeton’s strong three-point shooters in check for most of the game.

“Man, this is what I came back for,” Swain said amid a celebratory scene on the court after the game. “Like I said, I had incredibly high expectations for this group and myself, but this is the ultimate goal. To see so many young guys on the team happy after so much work and sacrifice this year. And they trusted me. They trusted me to carry this thing home and that’s what I tried to do.”

Yale has stuggled in non-conference games, going just 4-9 Against The Spread (30.8%) this season.
