The Iowa Hawkeyes passed their first big test of the season with flying colors on Tuesday, taking down #16 North Carolina 93-80. Now the challenge is remaining focused and not falling into any trap games during the next two matchups before taking on #1 Gonzaga on December 19th.
The first step in that process comes tonight as the Hawkeyes play host to the Iowa State Cyclones. The Clones come into the matchup on a different trajectory than Iowa, having missed their most recently scheduled game last Sunday due to COVID-19 concerns within the DePaul program. Iowa State enters at 1-1 on the season after losing to South Dakota State in their last game nine days ago.
