Iowa prevailed 94-87 in the national title game rematch to deny LSU a chance at a second consecutive championship.

LSU’s 102-85 victory over the Hawkeyes last year set the previous record, averaging 9.9 million viewers and peaking at 12.6 million viewers. That game was broadcast by ABC. Monday’s aired on ESPN.
