Mens BB: Iowa vs. Northern Colorado - Prediction VS.

UNC lost 16 out of their last 18 games last year, last year's Purdue team smoked them. I am not trying to come out overconfident (and neither will the Iowa team), but we are talking about a team that won only 4 games last year (2 in conf) and ended up last in the Big Sky. They aren't supposed to be that much better than last year.

If Iowa (a Big Ten team) cannot beat a team predicted to finish in the lower 2/3rds of the Big Sky conference AT HOME... we are in worse shape than I thought this year. We might not win many others if we lose this one. Personally, I think Idaho St is better than UNC.

Iowa 71, Northern Colorado 55
