What to Know
The Iowa Hawkeyes will face off against the SIU-Edwardsville Cougars at 9 p.m. ET on Friday at Carver-Hawkeye Arena. Iowa was 22-11 last year and made it as far as the second round of the NCAA tournament before being knocked out by the Tennessee Volunteers 83-77. SIUE was 10-21 last season and is coming off of a 61-52 victory against the Quincy.
Two last-season stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Iowa was 34th best (top 10%) in points per game, finishing the 2018 season with 78.3 on average. But SIUE ranked 57th in college basketball in points allowed per game, closing the season allowing only 81.3 on average (top 2%). We'll see which of these strengths -- offense or defense -- will win out.
The Hawkeyes have the odds in their favor, so they'll need to guard against complacency. A win is hardly a sure thing, especially this early in the season, so expect a good game.
