CauseThatsMyDJ Posted February 16, 2018 Report Share Posted February 16, 2018 When: Saturday, 2/17, 2pm ET on ESPN (Dan Dakich on the call) KenPom: Essentially a toss up, predicts Iowa 77-76 with a 47% chance for an IU win ESPN: 42% chance of an IU victory Vegas: IU -1 HTD's censured crystal ball: Iowa 81 IU 70 Iowa has not been an easy out at home recently. Since getting crushed by Purdue, they beat Wisconsin 85-67, Minnesota 94-80, and only lost to MSU 96-93. They have four guys averaging double figures, with Tyler Cook leading the way at 15. No one on the team averages more than 7 rebounds. They have some 3 point shooters, as Jordan Bohannon shoots 44%, and Miashe Dailey and Brady Ellingson both shoot 40%. Four Factors IU Iowa We are now the #1 defense in the B1G, conference games only considered. Meanwhile, Iowa is the WORST defense in the B1G, only considering conference games. They don't force turnovers and struggle to keep teams off the offensive glass. They also turn the ball over worse than everybody but Illinois, and we are the second best team in the league at turning the other team over. They are the best offensive rebounding team in the league, so Morgan, McSwain and Smith have their work cut out for them on the defensive glass.
