In a game from NCAA Basketball, we will see Michigan at Iowa.
The Michigan Wolverines are 11-5 this season and are currently ranked 19th. They lost to their city rivals of Michigan State a few days ago and are also coming off a 67-75 loss to Minnesota. The team won just 1 out of its 3 games but the real concern for them continues to be the defense. They are allowing 69 points per game while the offense is averaging 78. Jon Teske is a real threat in the paint, averaging 14.3 points and 7.9 rebounds per game. Zavier Simpson, on the other side, is adding 12.6 points and 8.9 assists per game.
The Iowa Hawkeyes are 12-5 and they also have some remarkable wins this year. They beat Maryland and Texas Tech already and have currently won their last two games. The team is great offensively, averaging nearly 80 points per game while also allowing 69. The Hawkeyes are one of the best assisting teams in the country with their 18 assists per game. Luka Garza has been phenomenal so far, averaging 22.3 points and 10.4 rebounds per game while Joe Wieskamp is adding 14.5 points and 6.2 rebounds per game.
I expect the Wolverines to rebounds with a much better performance in this game. They also beat Iowa already 103-91 a month ago and even though this time the game is on the road, it will not make much difference for them. I also have the points cushion, so I take it.
