RDM's career is commemorated in glorious plastic! - Reese Strickland-USA TODAY Sport

Cupcakes before the main course? If you insist...

The 900-lb. gorilla this week is Iowa's looming showdown with Iowa State in Ames this Friday night. But before Iowa gets that far, they do have one more minor hurdle to clear -- Fairleigh Dickinson at home tonight.

Fairleigh Dickinson is not very good (#324 in today's KenPom ratings), so this is definitely one of the sugary cupcakes left on Iowa's non-conference schedule, but there are still some useful things to watch for tonight: what's Iowa's defensive intensity like? How good is Iowa's outside shooting? Is Iowa's defense able to avoid giving an opponent plentiful good looks from long range?

It's also Roy Devyn Marble bobblehead night!

The game begins at 6 PM CST, with TV coverage from BTN.

The usual rules apply: no links to illegal online streams, no porn, no religion, no politics, no slurs, etc.

Go Hawks.
