It’s another wintery day in eastern Iowa as the Hawkeyes prepare for their first matchup with a team they’ve already played this season. It’s a late start in Carver-Hawkeye arena tonight and Iowa fans are hoping the Hawkeyes shooting is hotter than it is outside.
In the first matchup between the Hawkeyes and Wolverines, Michigan thoroughly out-shot Iowa from deep, hitting 10 of 24 to Iowa’s 3/15 shooting. Tonight, the Wolverines and Hawkeyes will each likely be without a key contributor from that first matchup as Jordan Bohannon is out for the season and Michigan’s Isaiah Livers’ status remains in doubt.
While the loss of Bohannon limits Iowa’s scoring options, the key tonight will not be scoring, but stopping Michigan from scoring. In the first meeting in Ann Arbor, the Wolverines dropped 103 on Iowa. The Hawkeyes need to keep that number around 80 to have a shot, even if they do get another 40+ point night from star Luka Garza.
Here’s everything you need to know about tonight’s matchup between Iowa and MIchigan as we count down the hours to tip-off.
