In a crucial Big Ten matchup on Tuesday night, Iowa will take on No. 15 ranked Indiana, with the potential to secure a spot in the NCAA Tournament. Following their impressive overtime victory against Michigan State, Iowa is projected as a No. 9 seed. In contrast, Indiana is coming off a win against Purdue, their second victory over them this season, after a loss to Michigan State.
Iowa’s win over Michigan State was a remarkable comeback, as they overcame a 13-point deficit in the final two minutes of regulation, eventually winning 112-106 in overtime. Kris Murray, Tony Perkins, and Payton Sandfort led the team’s balanced scoring attack. With an 18-11 (10-8 Big Ten) record, Iowa is in a favorable position on the NCAA Tournament bubble.
A victory against Indiana on Tuesday would almost guarantee Iowa a spot in the tournament. Although Iowa ranks highly in adjusted efficiency ratings and turnover rate, their 3-point shooting has been a weakness this season. However, they made 17 of 36 3-pointers against Michigan State. Facing Indiana’s 34th ranked defense in field goal percentage and 281st ranked defense in turnover rate, Iowa will rely on Kris Murray’s offensive firepower. Murray averages 20.2 points and 8.0 rebounds per game.
While Indiana has already secured a spot in the NCAA Tournament, they can still improve their seeding. Freshman Jalen Hood-Schifino led the team with a career-high 35 points in their win over Purdue. Seeking revenge against Iowa after their previous matchup, in which they blew a 21-point lead, Indiana ranks 21st in adjusted efficiency and has been an elite offensive team this season, with high shooting percentages from 3-point range and inside the arc. They will face an Iowa defense that ranks 298th in field goal percentage.
