DES MOINES, Iowa — It took only two seasons for Fran McCaffery to take the downtrodden Iowa program and make it a respectable one.

Iowa athletic director Gary Barta announced that the Philadelphia native has signed a new, 7-year deal with a raise. McCaffery will be paid at least $1.66 million a year with a base salary of $1.3 million starting next season.

MICHIGAN'S TREY Burke rushed into the frontcourt, trying to take advantage of a 2-on-1 break. At the last moment, he softly lobbed the ball toward the rim, where Glenn Robinson III slammed it through the hoop. That was the beginning of Michigan's latest offensive clinic, a highlight reel of dunks, three-pointers, and smart passing that overwhelmed visiting Iowa in a 95-67 rout Sunday. Burke had 19 points and a career-high 12 assists for the second-ranked Wolverines. Robinson had 20 points and 10 rebounds.

NEW YORK - Villanova roared out of the locker room and onto the court Sunday at the Barclays Center playing as if it didn't just want to snap its streak of second-round failures in the NCAA tournament, it wanted to smash it into little pieces. Still, the second-seeded Wildcats insisted that despite all the questions over the last several months and the near-suffocating pressure to get to the Sweet 16 for the first time since 2009, they didn't come out against Iowa any more fired up than at any other time during their season.

NEW YORK - Temple had one of its most resilient efforts of the season, but it wasn't enough to keep the Owls' NCAA dream alive. Center Adam Woodbury's tip-in at the buzzer gave No. 7 seeded Iowa a 72-70 overtime win over the No. 10 Owls in a South Regional thriller Friday at the Barclays Center. The Owls were dejected beyond belief, but they showed the national audience what their followers have seen all year: a team that refused to quit, kept fighting and left its heart on the court.

NEW YORK - Stung by the most difficult loss of his life early Friday night, Josh Brown simultaneously looked back and ahead. The thought of no longer having Quenton DeCosey on the wing and Jaylen Bond underneath to distribute the ball was not a pleasant one for Temple's junior point guard. "It's definitely going to be tough," Brown said. "I knew Quenton before I got here to Temple from playing with him at AAU and competing against him in summer league games in high school. I'm going to miss him a lot. He's like a brother to me. We're both from New Jersey.

NEW YORK – Poise, toughness, and heart. Those are the impressions that Iowa has of Temple as the teams meet in the NCAA South Regional game at the Barclays Center on Friday. The game will start approximately at 3:10, following the 12:40 p.m. Villanova-UNC Asheville opener. Neither Temple nor Iowa was familiar with each other before earning this NCAA assignment on Sunday night. Since then, they have had ample time to dissect each other. "From watching them on film I've been impressed with the tempo and how they try to dictate the tempo," said Jarrod Uthoff, Iowa's 6-foot-9 second-team all-American who is averaging 18.9 points.

Temple keys Quenton DeCosey and Obi Enechionyia have to hit from the perimeter. They were 6 for 30 in Temple's 77-62 loss to Connecticut during Saturday's American Athletic Conference semifinal in Orlando. DeCosey (15.6 ppg.) has been 33 for 114 in his last nine games and needs to snap out of his shooting funk. The Owls need production from their bench, specifically Devin Coleman, who changes the complexion of the game when he hits three-pointers. In a key win over SMU, he hit all seven of his three-pointers off the bench.

NEW YORK - Fran Dunphy has been coaching at the college level for 27 seasons. Fran McCaffery, another Philly guy, has been doing it for 19. They've gone against each other only twice. Even though Dunphy, when asked about that on Thursday, said, "It's amazing our paths haven't crossed before. " Well, at least not for a while. McCaffery, whose Iowa team will get Dunph's 10th-seeded Owls in Friday's first round of the NCAA South Regional at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, remembers things differently.
