Woodbury's rebound gives Iowa 72-70 OT win over Temple

NEW YORK (AP) One rebound by 7-foot-1 Adam Woodbury put all of Iowa's recent woes in the rearview mirror.

Woodbury's fifth rebound of the game was a putback at the overtime buzzer that gave seventh-seeded Iowa a 72-70 victory over Temple on Friday in the first round of the South Regional at Barclays Center.

The Hawkeyes came into the game having lost six of their last eight games and they had lost five of their last six NCAA Tournament games. All that matters now is that Iowa (22-10) will play second-seeded Villanova in the second round on Sunday. The Wildcats beat UNC-Asheville 86-56.
