SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Fresh off winning the Big 12 tournament, No. 3 seed Iowa State will play an East Regional game Friday against a North Carolina Central team making its NCAA tournament debut.

North Carolina Central, the No. 14 seed, is on a 20-game winning streak and has captured the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference regular-season and tournament titles. The Eagles (28-5) won their first league tournament title since 1950. Their history-making season also included an 82-72 overtime victory over NCAA tournament participant North Carolina State.

Iowa State also enters this tournament on a roll.

The Cyclones (26-7) beat Kansas State, Kansas and Baylor to win their first Big 12 tournament title since 2000.

The winner of Friday's game plays either No. 6 seed North Carolina (23-9) or No. 11 seed Providence (23-11) on Sunday.
