BUFFALO, N.Y. — The Iowa men’s basketball team’s season is over.

No. 5 seed Iowa lost, 67-63, to No. 12 seed Richmond in the first round of the NCAA Tournament on Thursday. Four days after the Hawkeyes won their fourth game in four days and earned the Big Ten Men’s Basketball Tournament title, they were stunned in the KeyBank Center in Buffalo, N.Y. Days after the Hawkeyes broke the Big Ten Tournament record with 46 3-pointers in a four-day span in Indianapolis, they shot 36.4 percent from the floor and knocked down only six of their 29 attempts from deep. The nation’s second-best adjusted-efficiency offense scored only .9 points per possession and turned the ball over 11 times in its loss.

Here are some Twitter reactions from the game.
