The Hawkeyes put up one of their best performances in a long time in blasting 10th seed Davidson in the 2nd round of the NCAA Tournament. Aaron White did what seniors are supposed to do: dominate when it matters most. And he didn’t disappoint with a 26 point and 6 rebound performance literally stepping on the throat of Davidson down the stretch. Fran McCaffery’s squad played stellar defense in holding Davidson to just 33% shooting from the floor and most importantly 21% from 3pt land. Now that the proverbial monkey is off of the Hawkeyes’ back with this win in the NCAA Tournament, they will look to slay Goliath and take down home favorite Gonzaga for a berth into the Sweet 16. The Zags will be a strong favorite to advance but if the Hawkeyes perform the way they did against Davidson, I like their chances!
