Spring Big Ten Preview #8 – Iowa

LAST SEASON – In early February, Iowa was most people’s pick as the most impressive team in the Big Ten. They’d handled MSU easily twice and pretty much everyone else as well, using a senior laden lineup along the way. Then a 2-5 close landed them at 12-6 in the league, continuing a streak of […]

BTT Preview Thursday Games

Northwestern vs. Michigan – This is a big one for both teams. Northwestern is pushing for an NIT berth (not the automatic it once would have been for a Big Ten team with 20 wins) and Michigan absolutely has to have a win to keep its NCAA hopes alive. Michigan won the only regular season […]

Iowa 76 Michigan State 59

The Iowa Hawkeyes used tremendous first half shooting and a huge edge in all the hustle/energy/tougness categories (offensive rebounding, turnovers and second chance points) to push out to a 22 point halftime lead , one they never surrendered in a shocking victory at Breslin Center over Michigan State. Not going to review all the keys […]


Michigan State gets a chance to avenge its sole loss to date of the season on Thursday night when they host the Iowa Hawkeyes. Iowa has had a week to prepare for this game and MSU has been off since their Sunday afternoon victory over Penn State, so both teams should be well rested and […]
