Iowa vs Northwestern Preview

The Hawkeyes are coming off an impressive 67-49 win against a 12th ranked Maryland team. The win against Maryland ended Iowa’s two-game losing skid, after they dropped back-to-back games against Penn State and Nebraska.

The Hawkeyes have the best scoring offense in the Big Ten, scoring 79.6 points a game. Center Luke Garza leads Iowa in both scoring and rebounding, averaging 22 points and 10.8 rebounds a game.

The Hawkeyes haven’t been the best defensive team this season, however. They’re 13th in the Big Ten in scoring defense, allowing 69.4 points a game. They’re third in the Big Ten in steals, though, so they have been opportunistic at times.

On defense, Northwestern is allowing 65.7 points a game. The Wildcats are scoring 66.8 points a game. Their shooting has not been optimal, as they’re making just 42.4% of their shots from the field.
