Last Time Out

COVID worries inside the walls of the DePaul Blue Demons program canceled the game just hours before tip on Sunday, Dec. 6.

About Iowa

The Hawkeyes beat the No. 16 Tar Heels on Tuesday 93-80.

Bohannon led the Hawkeyes in scoring with 24, Garza had 14 rebounds and four blocks...

Thankfully, I’ll be covering SICL basketball at English Valleys so I’ll be glad to not know about the carnage.

Player To Watch:

Luka Garza.

The best player for the Hawkeyes went to, as everyone knows, a high school in Washington D.C.

Statistically, however, the Maret School prep star is averaging 29.5 points per game and 10.75 rebounds per game this season.

Do you folks recognize the person whose shot is being blocked? No? It’s Ed Hendrix, a current wide receiver for Syracuse.

What Will Happen:

I’m not sure if it’ll be a good 40 minutes on the hardwood for the Cyclones.

Watch it, if you dare, or keep up with English Valleys vs. Tri-County, your pick.

Apparently Iowa’s largest margin of victory in this series is 27, so, I guess, that’s fun to see if Iowa State can keep it under that.

No. 3 Iowa 90

Iowa State 75

Pick Three:

  1. Iowa State has a lead in this game
  2. Garza has a double-double.
  3. Bohannon makes more free throws than field goals.
