What you need to know about Iowa
The Hawkeyes made easy work of the Northwestern Wildcats on Sunday and carried off a 96-73 win. Iowa can attribute much of its success to center Luka Garza, who posted a double-double on 17 points and ten boards, and guard Joe Wieskamp, who had 16 points.
Garza continues to make a strong case as the National Player of the Year while averaging 26.9 points, 8.7 rebounds and 1.8 blocks per game. He had 38 points, eight rebounds and four blocked shots when the Hawkeyes lost to the Hoosiers last February.
What you need to know about Indiana
Meanwhile, the game between IU and the Purdue Boilermakers last week was not particularly close, with IU falling 81-69. The Hoosiers’ loss shouldn’t obscure the performances of forwards Trayce Jackson-Davis, who had 25 points, and Race Thompson, who dropped a double-double on 13 points and 10 rebounds.
Jackson-Davis had 17 points, 10 rebounds and two blocked shots in Indiana’s win over Iowa last season.
