Iowa Basketball Gamewatch #3: Iowa vs. Michigan – Feb. 08, 11:00 AM

We’re coming down the home stretch towards the beginning of March Madness, the time when every team in America is clawing their way to be considered elite.  This Saturday Iowa will get that chance, when #10 Michigan heads to Iowa City for a top 25 showdown.

It’s been a rollercoaster of a year for the Hawks, and they are in need of key resume win; to boost their position for the NCAA tournament.  Tuesday’s home loss to Ohio State just upped the stakes in the Big 10 race, and the Wolverines know a win against Iowa will greatly help their chances to claim the title.

For Iowa to get back on track, they’ll need to closely look at what went wrong against the Buckeyes.  The Hawks have a great leader in Roy Devyn Marble, and when he’s on, Iowa’s on.  Iowa has to make it a point to get him going early and often.  The 3 ball is your friend…unless you’re not making them, and Iowa forgot to keep pounding inside.  Iowa is plenty deep, but when the game is on the line; rotation needs to take a back seat to playing the best lineup available.  Time for Iowa to show their mental toughness, step up and defend Carver-Hawkeye Arena and grab a W!
