Iowa State Men’s Basketball Preview: We’re Talkin’ Florida A&M

2019 Revenge Game

Syndication: The Ames Tribune Nirmalendu Majumdar/Ames Tribune / USA TODAY NETWORK

Last Time Out

Iowa State won by 51 a week ago against a different A&M. Prairie View led 17-16 in the first half and the game got away from them in a hurry. Curtis Jones had his best game as a Cyclone hitting 6 three-point shots, and the Cyclones were able to take care of business after blowing out in-state rival Iowa.

About Florida A&M

Florida A&M only scored 52 against the third best basketball team in the state. “The Capital’s Home Team”, not to be confused with Drake who Iowa would never schedule, and especially never play them at the Knapp Center, beat the Rattlers 88-52.

Florida A&M has been through a gauntlet of P6 teams and are heading to Hilton on a rare NCAA back-to-back game.

Opposing Player to Watch

Florida A&M essentially has two leading scorers getting 13 points per. I’m gonna tip my cap to Love Bettis because that’s an objectively awesome name. Bettis is 7-15 from three on the year, so maybe shoot more of those Mr. Love, but struggles to do much else besides scoring. He’s listed as a guard but nearly averages more turnovers than assists, Monte Morris would not be impressed.

Pick 3

  1. Tamin Lipsey grabs 4+ steals.
  2. Milan Momcilovic leads the team in scoring.
  3. Florida A&M has more turnovers than made field goals.

Score Prediction

Iowa State- 93

Florida A&M- 46
