In a game from NCAA Basketball, we will see Western Carolina at Iowa.
Western Carolina is a very weak side this season. It is 3-9 on the year and it is just coming off a loss against another weak side in the face of High Point Panthers, 86-59. Western Carolina had no answers on defense and they were trailing early in the game by 30 points after a 15-0 unanswered run by High Point. Western Carolina is averaging 70.7 points per game on 45.0% shooting from the field. Defensively, Western Carolina is allowing 79.1 points per game.
Iowa is ranked currently and it has won 8 games and has only 2 losses. It won by 23 points against Northern Iowa on Saturday. The Hawkeyes had a big lead at halftime due to their good start to the game and they didn’t let up at any point. On the season, Iowa is averaging 82.1 points per game on 46.3% shooting from the field. Defensively, Iowa is allowing their opponents to average 73.2 points per game.
Iowa has only lost games to Big 10 opponents and given the fact that Western Carolina is playing abysmally at the moment, I believe that the home side won’t have any problems beating them. I also expect them to get the victory very easily.
