Iowa Basketball Gamewatch #4: Iowa vs. Wisconsin – Feb. 22, 9:00 AM

Normally known for raining down 3’s in Assembly Hall, the Indiana Hoosiers were forced to postpone this past Tuesday’s scheduled game with Iowa; due to metal falling from the ceiling.  Neither school could agree on when and where to play the game, and soon it might be left to the Big 10 to decide.

Now the Hawkeyes head back to Iowa City for a matchup with the 16th ranked Wisconsin Badgers.  The Big 10 has been upset city, leaving the Big 10 title up for grabs.  Iowa is just one game back from both Michigan and Michigan State.  But they’re not alone.  Wisconsin and Ohio State have joined the party as well, making Saturday’s game crucial for both teams.

An early January loss to Wisconsin on the road has to be on the mind of the Hawks.  Carver-Hawkeye has been rocking this year, and the Hawks have responded.  Devyn Marble needs to get red hot.  He’s the rock of this team and drives opponents crazy.  The Badgers are a tough physical team and Iowa’s big men will have to match them every step of the way.  Keys to a Hawk victory will come down to two things, rebounding and free throws.  Some games, Iowa looks great at both, others; they have been terrible.  Attack the boards and knock down the freebies and Iowa will come away victorious in a close game down to the wire.
