LINE - Iowa is a 7 point favorite at home; 117.5 is the over/under.
Iowa gets Michigan at Carver tonight. The Wolverines have lost 11 out of 13 and those 2 wins have been against Penn State and Northwestern. Iowa has no business losing this game, no business at all. Harris (Manny, not Dion) and Sims (DeShawn not Courtney) are really all the UM has going for them. I really see Iowa's D putting the clamps down in Carver. Iowa has now lost 3 out its last 4, including one up in the Twin Cities that was just embarrassing. I look for Iowa to rebound tonight against Michigan.
I want to see Justin Johnson hit 10 three pointers tonight... I really do...
KEYS TO THE GAME:
1.) Get offensive rebounds.
2.) Extend the defense.
3.) Keep Freeman on a tight leash in regards to driving the lane. Have Tony stay around the arc where he is much more effective. Instead, use Jeff Peterson to drive and dish.
4.) Two Words: Seth Gorney.
5.) Control the tempo.
Iowa - 71
Michigan - 54
