MEN'S BB: Iowa Basketball Will Be Better Than You Think
Honestly... the Starting Five isn't half bad
The Hawkeyes are going to be in trouble in the depth dept, but if any of the incoming recruits can give Iowa good minutes, this team isn't as bad as some people want to make it out to be.
Also, Brommer can only get better. Cougill suddenly went from one of the better centers in the nation (holding his own against the nation's best on the AAU circuit last summer) to "fans" saying he's not Big Ten material. Gatens is going to be better (All-Big Ten better) and we didn't get to see all that Tucker can do on the offensive side of the ball (he'll surprise EVERYONE next season). Cole might be 100% now (you saw what he could do when he was).
In-depth breakdown of next year's team in the next few months...
